DALLAS – Origin Bank is awarding four Dallas area schools with a total of $12,000 as part of its Bank on Their Future community initiative.
In keeping with its core purpose to enrich the lives of the people in its community, Origin launched the Bank on Their Future program on September 16, 2019, as a contest for participating schools surrounding the bank’s new Sylvan 30 Banking Center at 1808 Sylvan Avenue. The 14 participating schools were encouraged to submit votes on Origin’s program website, www.BankOnTheirFuture.com, with the three schools having the greatest number of votes at the close of the contest on October 28, 2019, receiving cash awards. Origin representatives will be on hand to present the cash awards to the first, second and third place schools at scheduled assemblies.
