First Bank contributes to Amigos

Written by: Susan Richwine |


Richmond, Indiana – First Bank Richmond announced today that they will donate $7,500 to Amigos, the Richmond Latino Center during the month of March 2021. The mission of Amigos is to empower the Latinx community to engage actively in Richmond and Wayne County and to promote learning, cooperation, and respect across cultures. Their focus is on education, health, and creating cultural connections.

“Amigos, the Richmond Latino Center is so grateful for the continued support of First Bank Richmond. Their 2021 sponsorship will assist with the Cinco de Mayo Cinco K (5K), the Richmond International Food Festival, Summer Camp, Amigos Educational Programs: English Language Classes, Latinx Leadership Program, Youth Tennis, and Basic Needs for Families. Last year, First Bank Richmond provided Amigos with sponsorship funding as well as funding to purchase a bus to transport participants to and from programs, a major barrier that Amigos had previously faced. Amigos and all of the Richmond community are so blessed to have the support of First Bank Richmond.” 

Karrie Lackey, Resource Development Specialist - Amigos, the Richmond Latino Center.

“First Bank is pleased to be a long-time supporter of the Amigos Center.  We believe in their programs which provide support for the Latino community by hosting food give-aways, English language classes, social family events, and many programs for youth including tennis and music lessons.”
