Farmers Bank & Trust Kicks Off Third Annual Heart of the Red, White & Blue Military Drive

Farmers Bank & Trust is kicking off the 3rd Annual HEART of the Red, White & Blue military care package drive. For the past two years, we have been able to collect items directly. Due to COVID-19, we are only collecting cash donations from now until Friday, November 13. The money will be used to purchase gift cards for local military families or to create care packages to send to deployed troops.

One complete care package only costs $20 to fill and will last the troops up to two weeks. Cash donations can be dropped off at any Farmers Bank & Trust location. To find a location near you, click here.

“Being deployed and away from family puts you in a lot of mental stress, but that is where the help of the community plays a huge role,” U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant Bryan Emory said. “Receiving care packages, notes, etc. from people back home gives all of us a sense of relief.”

Emory is from Texarkana, AR, and has a wife, Michelle, and two daughters, Olivia and Ryleigh. He has served our country for ten years and has been deployed on two different occasions.

“When we get to sit down and go through the packages, big or small, and read the notes we are sent, it lets us know that we are appreciated by everyone back home,” he said.

“I can speak for every troop that is, or has been deployed, we greatly appreciate the continued support that we receive from all of you.”

At Farmers Bank & Trust, we support and honor those who have served and are currently serving our country in war or peace. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed.
