IBC Bank gives Christmas cheer
As part of the It's a Brighter Christmas program, IBC Bank employees raised funds to adopt a family for Christmas through the Putnam City Foundation. The employee donations were matched by the bank. With the extra money, employees were able to shop for and donate gifts to Positive Tomorrows, a private, tuition-free elementary school that meets the educational and social service needs of homeless children and their families. The company began the It's A Brighter Christmas program in 1995 as a way to help families and children enjoy the holidays.
