St. Francis employees bring Christmas to 104 Cheyenne County children
pile of gifts donated

Our St. Francis banking center's Angel Tree Program reached 104 Cheyenne County children this season thanks to the generosity of the St. Francis and Bird City communities.

The Angel Tree Program provides gifts from "Santa" to area children. Angel tags are placed on Christmas trees in several Cheyenne County locations. Community members pick up tags and purchase the gifts for children in need.

In 2018, 74 children received gifts from Santa. This year, our banking center was able to gift 104 children. Each child on the Angel Tree also received a winter coat through funds raised by Western State Bank employees working at the United Methodist Thrift Store.

Gifts were distributed to the families on December 18 in Bird City and on Friday, December 20 in St. Francis.
