First National Bank and Trust Company Helps Continue Local Red Kettle Program

December 18, 2018

Dec., 18, 2018, Clinton, Ill. - First National Bank and Trust Company is pleased to announce a donation of $2,500 to Clinton Area Ministerial Association (CAMA) to assist this year’s local Red Kettle Program with The Salvation Army.

Due to recent economic changes in the Clinton area, The Salvation Army Red Kettle Program was not as prominent in the community this Christmas season. First National Bank and Trust Company wanted to ensure this program would continue to thrive with a recent donation. Clinton Area Ministerial Association (CAMA) helps orchestrate this community wide effort, and all funds stay local.

Today in the U.S., The Salvation Army assists more than four-and-a-half million people during the Thanksgiving and Christmas time periods. First National Bank and Trust Company is glad to do just that this holiday season, and to echo one of the founders of the Red Kettle Program, "Keep the pot boiling.”

To learn more about CAMA contact Pastor Scott Marsh who serves as President of the organization at (217) 454-6846.
