Red River Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) have partnered to award $4,000 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funds to Image Changers, a nonprofit based in Shreveport, Louisiana.
The funding was celebrated during a ceremonial check presentation on October 7.
"This is the second year that Red River Bank and FHLB Dallas have supported us with the PGP, and it is greatly appreciated as we work to expand our services and our reach," said Damon Humphrey, president and executive director of Image Changers. The funding will help the organization cover costs of planning for its long-range goals of furthering economic development, homeownership and educational opportunities for low- to moderate-income families.
"We are pleased to support nonprofits such as Image Changers that are improving the quality of life for members of our Shreveport community," said Jannease Seastrunk, Red River Bank senior vice president and community relations officer. "This PGP grant will provide them additional resources to grow, and we are honored to be a part of it."
For 2021, FHLB Dallas awarded $400,000 in PGP grants, and its members provided an additional $200,250 for an impact of more than $600,000 in its five-state District of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas.
"The relationship between FHLB Dallas and its members promotes grassroots community outreach in the cities where our members operate," said Greg Hettrick, first vice president and director of Community Investment at FHLB Dallas. "We value this partnership with Red River Bank, which has been very involved in our community investment initiatives."
