Years sponsoring the 5K Home Run:

Why do you sponsor the 5K? First State Bank & Trust recognizes that Family Promise of Lawrence is a vital part of our local community. As a community bank, we are proud to support Family Promise of Lawrence however we can. The 5K is a great fundraiser to contribute to!

How do you participate with Family Promise throughout the year? Besides the monetary donations while sponsoring the 5K in 2017, 2018 and now 2022, our mortgage loan originator, Jessica Wollesen, has been connected in a couple ways to Family Promise of Lawrence for the past 5 years, as well.  Whether it is fundraising for the Lawrence Board of Realtors Community Foundation that often benefits Family Promise or participating in Project 913, her fundraising work has be ongoing.
