First American Bank recently donated $500 to Grace Place to help kick off the Salvation Army's

marathon of bell-ringing.

Grace Place has been serving the homeless for over 15 years and has recently been serving record numbers of people. Donations have not kept up with the increased organizational needs of their expanded shelter. The mission of Grace Place is to provide safe temporary shelter to homeless individuals and families without discrimination, while giving guidance to promote independence.

Denim with a Cause was created to raise money and awareness for local charities and non-

profit organizations. Every Friday for a donation of $5, FAB employees may wear Denim with a

Cause. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the chosen organization. First

American Bank is located at 2424 Monetary Blvd., suite 107, on the corner of Carmichael and

Hanley in Hudson.
