The Woonsocket School accepted 13 computers while the city of Mount Vernon, St. Benedict Catholic Church (Yankton) and the Wynot (NE) Fire Department each accepted one computer for their needs.
To date, First National Bank South Dakota has donated over 350 computers to area organizations since they began their program four years ago. Terry Utech, regional retail manager in Yankton, indicated the donations are another way to reach out to the bank's customers.
"We serve a variety of needs for our customers, and assisting these non-profit organizations is another way to extend our hospitality to them," Utech explained. "We've donated hundreds of computers to more than three-dozen organizations in the past few years, and we look forward to continuing that service to our communities."
To qualify, the organizations simply needed to provide proof of their non-profit status and send a letter describing the intended use for the computers. Interested organizations may send their application to Peggy Joslin, c/o First National Bank South Dakota, P.O. Box 1366, Mitchell, SD 57301.
