Winston-Salem – Experiment in Self-Reliance (ESR) partnered with M&F Bank for a Back to School Drive to benefit clients of ESR. With the help of M&F Bank staff members and individuals from the community, three boxes filled with school supplies were donated to help ESR families in need.
ESR, a non-profit, Community Action Agency, has been helping people in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County since 1964. Often clients struggle to find adequate and affordable school supplies for themselves and their children. ESR was thankful to partner with M&F Bank to relieve that burden for ESR clients.
“Feeling prepared on that first day is important,” says Twana W. Roebuck, Executive Director of ESR. “It can truly dictate the course of the day.”
As the loan holders for ESR’s new facility, M&F Bank has supported ESR and countless community partners in their endeavors to provide much needed resources to individuals and families in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County.
“We could not be more grateful to M&F Bank – its staff members and community supporters – for helping our clients and their children breathe a little easier.”
Experiment in Self-Reliance Programs include Self-Sufficiency, Housing, Forsyth Free Tax, and New Century IDA (Individual Development Account). Clients must be working low to moderate income individuals and families. For more information about ESR, visit our website at www.eisr.org or call 336-722-9400.
