First American Bank president John Bain is pictured with Grammy’s House executive director Celina Bryant and Grammy’s House employee Adrianne Martinez, along with numerous food and household items being donated to Grammy’s House by First American Bank employees and customers. For the second year in a row, First American devised a game with its employees and customers – this year, it was Bingo – to collect items for the holiday season to be donated to the local domestic violence shelter. “Grammy’s House is a phenomenal organization,” Bain said, “and we are just glad to help the kids and to be able to support the families in need.” Bryant said the donation could not have come at a better time. “We had just inventoried our pantry, which was getting pretty bare, and this will go a long way into the holiday season, for which we are very appreciative,” Bryant said.
