Arvest Bank and its associates in Northwest Arkansas donated more than $146,000 to the United Way to help serve individuals and organizations across the region.

The area Arvest Bank branches raised a total of $146,466, almost $40,000 more than the $107,731.77 raised in 2012, as part of the United Way of Northwest Arkansas’* 2013 workforce campaign. The money represents a combination of Arvest employee contributions and corporate donations.

“The United Way’s workforce campaign is a lifeline to thousands of families in our region and contributing to it is one of the most powerful ways we can serve the community,” said Roger Holroyd, President of Arvest Bank in Siloam Springs, Ark., and a former member of the board for the United Way of Northwest Arkansas. “It gives our Arvest family the chance to help our neighbors.”

The United Way of Northwest Arkansas supports 75 programs in the region operated by organizations that feed, educate and care for children, families and adults. It serves four counties: Benton, Madison and Washington in Arkansas and McDonald County in Missouri. 

“It’s always great to see a company with continued growth, and Arvest continues to be one of our top five company campaigns,” said Julie Petree, marketing and communications manager of the United Way of Northwest Arkansas. “Arvest also continues to support United Way of Northwest Arkansas in other ways, such as volunteering and advocating.”
