Jane and I had a fun visit with one of our Bankers, David Byrd (pictured here with his staff and his truck full of dog food and other items). A long time Fondren professional but now, the new Branch Manager at the Fondren BancorpSouth, he told us a great story about the staff at our BancorpSouth taking personal time and effort to gather food and necessities for ARF – a local no-kill shelter.
Here’s a great article about their efforts by FindItInFondren.com – “Vanda Crowe says pets have a special place in her heart. That’s why, after hearing Elizabeth “Pippa” Jackson of Animal Rescue Fund of Mississippi speak at a recent meeting, she knew she had to help”…more.
I am reaching out to David to see how long the Branch will be collecting the needed items. Let’s spread the word!
