Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.
The Riverton First Interstate Bank donated $7,500 to local nonprofit Eagles Hope Transitions. Their $7,500 was then matched by the First Interstate Bank Foundation bringing the total donation to $15,000.
This large donation is part of their yearly giving back to local nonprofits. “They [Eagles Hope] are doing good work for the community and families,” said First Interstate Bank Administrator Lori Mohler. “We are excited to be a part of that.”
Eagles Hope is working toward opening their Phase 1 Housing next month. They are practically starting with nothing, shared Executive Director Michelle Widmayer. “The cabinets are bare, cleaning supplies are very limited, no plates, bowls, cups, glasses, utensils, pots, pans, etc…We are basically starting from scratch.” Not only needing basic needs, two other significant financial hurdles include: large renovation projects and payroll to properly staff both Eagles Hope locations.
The Riverton High School Leadership class recently held donation drives for Eagles Hope along with building a website for them where financial donations can be made. You can learn more about the donation drives and website by clicking here.
