Alpine Bank collecting children’s books
In the spirit of volunteering, Alpine Bank is promoting Colorado Business Reads. EPIC(Executives Partnering to Invest in Children) and Alpine Bank have teamed up to endorse a statewide book drive for children from birth to 8 years of age. The primary goal is to promote and create public awareness as well as enable children to explore their imaginations through reading. We are collecting new or gently used children’s books at our Breckenridge, Frisco, and Dillon locations through May 15th. It is spring cleaning time, so please look through your gently used books for the chance to give a child the opportunity that they might not otherwise have.
