TheBANK Makes A Donation to Riverbend Family Ministries

TheBANK of Edwardsville recently donated $1,000 to Riverbend Family Ministries in Wood River. According to Tammy Iskarous, Executive Director of Riverbend Family Ministries, the donation monies will be used to counteract the effects of violence in children’s lives.

The partnership will provide therapy for children and families that are victims of abuse, neglect or violence and, more specifically, will be used to buy therapeutic toys, art supplies and other vital tools to assist therapists as they navigate the care of children experiencing trauma. Riverbend Family Ministries’ vision is to provide resources and training for smaller non-profit organizations to work together under one roof, providing families and individuals the tools they need to be self-sufficient. It concentrates its collaborative, holistic efforts on children, youth and families who have experienced trauma, most often due to violence, addiction, poverty and homelessness.
