PRINCETON—First Financial Bank will collect donations of pet food, pet supplies and cash during the bank’s “Paws for the Cause” drive from Feb. 13 through March 17.
Boxes for donations and counter boxes for cash will be available to the public in every First Financial lobby.
Employees in each of the counties the bank serves have selected a local animal shelter, humane society or rescue organization to receive the food, supplies and funds collected.
Donations will stay in the county in which they are made. In Gibson County, donations will go to Gibson County Animal Services. First Financial will also make a corporate contribution to each of the selected organizations.
In association with the drive, First Financial is holding a Paws for the Cause pet photo contest that is open to the public.
Everyone is welcome to enter a favorite pet photo, with a limit of one entry per person. The prize for best photo is $100 cash to the winner and $100 cash to a nonprofit humane society or animal welfare organization of the winner’s choice.
Complete contest rules and information are available on the bank’s website at www.first-online.com.
