Recently, the staff of First Bank presented a donation of $500 to Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County (CYP) to support Dolly Parton's Imagination Library (DPIL). Through Imagination Library, CYP is able to mail new, age-appropriate books to over 1,000 Dare County children each month, helping to strengthen their imaginations and develop a love of reading as early as birth. Pictured from L to R: First Bank employees Liz Minton, Kristi Neal, Assistant Manager Nathan Ladd, CYP Board Member Tess Judge, CYP Early Learning Coordinator Carla Heppert, Manager Gail Hodges, and City Executive Mike Wiegand. For more information on how you can register your child for DPIL in Dare County or how you can help support the program in the Dare County Community, please call us at 252-441-0614.
