Starion employees raise $2,100 for Cops and Kids
December 15, 2017
The month of November was a little hairy at Starion Bank. Twelve men at branches in Bismarck and eight in Mandan competed for bragging rights during No Shave November, a.k.a. “Noshember.” But the real winners were the children receiving gifts through the Cops and Kids program.
A total of $2,100 was raised through entry fees, paid votes for favorite beard and a match from the bank. Starion business banker Doug Zinke presented the donation to Bismarck Police Department Sgt. Mitch Wardzinski.
Cops and Kids is coordinated by the Fraternal Order of Police Missouri Valley Lodge #3. Wardzinski, vice president for the organization, said approximately 85 children in Bismarck and Mandan participated this year. Each child went shopping and had lunch with a police officer. “It’s a great opportunity for kids to see us in a different light and that we are people too,” said Wardzinski.
