The Bastrop County Animal Shelter recently took in an unexpected surprise in the form of a check from Frontier Bank of Texas.
Individual members of the bank’s board of directors and staff recently pooled some of their spending money to help the county care for the large population of animals taken in by the shelter in the past few weeks. Frontier Bastrop Market Manager Wanda Rucker presented the check in the amount of $2,050 to Precinct Four County Commissioner Donna Snowden.
“I want to say how much the community support and involvement helps the shelter,” said Snowden. “Working together allows us to do more for the animals as well as the people of Bastrop County.”
According to Rucker, Frontier’s monetary contribution is only part of a larger role the bank expects to play at the shelter.
“We are planning now to host an adoption event at the bank when the time is right,” she said. “It’s all part of our role as a community bank to support our community and that includes the puppies and kittens that are taken in by the shelter.”
The contribution to the local animal shelter is one of many charities and organizations served and supported by the directors, officers and staff of Frontier Bank. The bank was founded in Bastrop County and provides countless volunteers and financial support throughout the community.
