Columbia bank is doing a Warm Hearts Winter Drive, where we try to get as many donations as possible to help our local homeless shelters.

Time:
3pm-5pm

A little background on Columbia Bank’s Warm Hearts Winter Drive; it was launched on December 1, 2015, to help benefit homeless shelters in local communities across the northwest. The program rallied local communities to make cash donations and provide new warm winter wear, including gloves, scarves, coats, socks, shoes, mittens, and hats for adults and children at any Columbia Bank location. It was an instant success, raising $130,000 in the first 30 days.
To date, through generous donations from our clients, employees and friends in our communities we have raised over $841,000. This year we have set our annual fundraising goal at $250,000 to surpass raising over $1,000,000 in five years for our shelter partners.

Bring your kiddos and pets to get some photos with Santa!

Dec 20 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Please join us for our first annual “A Night Before Christmas” event and help us share a little holiday magic with the children of Children’s Village, a local non-profit which provides a home to children in desperate need of a safe haven from abuse, neglect, homelessness, and severe family crisis in the Coeur d’ Alene area.

~Bring the kids for pictures with SANTA and enjoy our free hot cocoa bar~Possibly LIVE music—-(we’re working on it😉)

We will be collecting donations (100% of your donations will go to Children’s Village), and in return, our vendors will be offering you a chance to finish up your Christmas shopping with some great savings (up to 25% off) on your total regular-priced purchases from 6-9pm. Here’s what we would like to offer you for your generosity to Children’s Village:

$5 cash/gift card donation = 5% off your total purchase

$25+ cash/gift card donation= 25% off your total purchase

Besides a cash donation, Children’s Village is in need of GIFT CARDS this season, to help provide food, clothing, school supplies, and toiletries for the kids. Grocery/clothing store gift cards and restaurant gift cards (which are useful to their mentoring programs) are the most appreciated.

If you would like to donate a Midtown Market gift card, we will offer a 15% discount on donated gift cards (and we do have some cute beanies/scarves, clothing, bath/body products, books/games, jewelry, tutus, hair bows, and vintage toys that kids would enjoy, in case you are wondering what we have for kids! 🙂 )

EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR helps this wonderful non-profit continue to help out these children in desperate need, long after the holidays are over. AND— even if you cannot make it to this event, we would REALLY appreciate if you could help us out by SHARING this event and inviting ALL the friends on your NICE list! 😊

Midtown Market customers!—Let’s Open our hearts and our wallets and show Children’s Village how much we really care about the tireless work and long hours they put in every day to better the lives of these little ones—day in and day out!! ❤️❤️
