Business Monday Briefs: FirstBank, NYP fundraiser underway in C’dale; Virtual mountain job fair Thursday


FirstBank and NY Pizza team up for fundraising

FirstBank partners with Carbondale’s New York Pizza to raise funds for the local Stepping Stones association in Roaring Fork Valley. For every Philly Cheese Steak purchased from New York Pizza October 11-31, FirstBank will donate $ 10 to the nonprofit, up to $ 5,000.

Stepping Stones is a community-based youth mentoring program that operates drop-in centers for youth and young adults in the Roaring Fork Valley. Its mission is to cultivate strong mentoring relationships and community spaces, and to foster personal growth, compassion and responsibility in young people aged 10 to 21.

This year’s “Give for Good” campaign follows FirstBank’s $ 10,000 contribution to the Stepping Stones fundraising campaign, which helped fund renovations to its youth center. The new facility includes a wellness center to support social, emotional, mental and physical health.

“We are proud to support Stepping Stones’ mission of youth success and empowerment, said Dave Portman, President of FirstBank Roaring Fork Valley Market. “We are grateful to New York Pizza for partnering with us and are delighted the community is getting involved, while enjoying a delicious meal. “
