MOUNTAIN HOME, AR – Farmers and Merchants Bank is partnering with the Arkansas State University Mountain Home (ASUMH) Trailblazers on a new fundraising initiative for the athletics department.
For a limited time, the bank will have branded tumblers available at any of its Mountain Home area branches. In exchange for a $40 donation, supporters will receive a tumbler along with special discounts and free items at coffee shops around the Twin Lakes area.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be directed to the new ASUMH athletics department and support more than 50 student athletes. Launched in the fall of 2022, the college currently offers baseball, bass fishing, cross country, eSports and softball. Students will be able to compete as part of the National Junior College Athletics Association, Region II, Division II.
“We are ecstatic to partner with ASUMH in support of student athletes”, stated Farmers and Merchants Bank Market President Sally Gilbert. “ASUMH’s programs allow students to continue their athletic careers, while providing new events for our community to enjoy. We appreciate local businesses for joining the fun, and we encourage you to get your mug and “Play the Field” by visiting merchants in support of student athletes.
