CLINTON — As part of its community reinvestment efforts, First National Bank and Trust Company has donated $2,500 to the Clinton Community YMCA to support the “Strong Kids” program.

“Strong Kids” is an initiative that is community-based and supported annually to assist the local YMCA in providing scholarships and reduced memberships to children in the area.

First National Bank and Trust Company reinvests 10 percent of the bank’s pre-tax income back into the communities through its IgniteProsperity® program. The reinvestment is made in the form of sponsorships and donations to local nonprofits, as well as through teaching financial literacy at local schools.

Additionally, employees are offered 50 hours of volunteer time off to use in their communities, including board involvement.

Matt Hall, a universal banker at First National Bank and Trust Company, joined the bank in August 2020, and serves on the Clinton Community YMCA as a board member.

Since 2018, First National Bank and Trust Company has donated more than $17,000 to the “Strong Kids” program. The YMCA’s mission is to put faith-based principles into practice through “programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.”

“We are grateful for community collaborators like First National Bank and Trust Company who trust the YMCA and offer funding to help give financial aid to kids and community members for programming,” said CEO of Clinton Community YMCA, Rennie Cluver. “Being at the YMCA every day, I am in a neat position to see what these funds and scholarship dollars at work. We are thankful for community members and businesses in a small community like this and assures me the YMCA is doing the right thing for others.”
