Flags for Heroes

The Meridian Trust North Star Foundation hosted its first annual Flags for Heroes fundraiser in observance of Veterans Day. Community members and organizations were invited to sponsor an American flag in honor or in memory of their heroes. Heroes included military personnel, first responders, healthcare workers and family members. 
We'd like to thank our sponsors for their support. Because of their incredible generosity, we were able to display 450 American flags at the Cheyenne East and Downtown branches in Wyoming; and at the Wellington branch in Colorado. Additionally, 30 decals were displayed at branches in Lander, Rawlins, Yellowstone and Rock Springs in Wyoming. 

Special thanks go to our volunteers and our communities for helping make this fundraiser a success. It was truly an honor to fly these American flags for your heroes.

We were able to raise $30,000 for the Meridian Trust North Star Foundation that will go towards funding and supporting local nonprofit causes in our communities.
