Arvest Bank in Northwest Arkansas donated more than $100,000 to United Way to help serve individuals and organizations across the region.

Area Arvest Bank branches raised a total of $107,731.77 as part of United Way of Northwest Arkansas’* 2012 workforce campaign. The money represents a combination of Arvest employee contributions and corporate donations.

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

United Way of Northwest Arkansas supports 75 programs in the region operated by organizations that feed, educate and care for children, families and adults.

“Arvest is an important contributor to our workforce campaign,” said Julie Petree, marketing and communications manager of United Way of Northwest Arkansas. “We appreciate their generosity and are grateful to all our donors who help us as we support the community through programs and services for people in need.”

United Way of Northwest Arkansas serves four counties: Benton, Madison and Washington in Arkansas, and McDonald County, Missouri.
