Community Bank of Florida's Deposit Operations Representative Jaime Ramos has met his goal! For months he has been fundraising - holding bake sales, car washes and writing letters asking for donations. He finally reached his $2,300 goal in order to purchase 100 book bags for 6-8th graders from local middle schools, including Campbell Drive, Homestead and Leisure City, as well as kids from Chapman Partnership Homeless Center. Jaime wanted to make sure the book bags were full of supplies so he called his friends from the Homestead Junior Woman's Club, who were glad to fill the bags with folders, paper, pencils, pens and rulers. Enthusiastic about helping others, Jaime said, "It couldn't have been done without everyone's support. Thank you to the bank employees, the Juniors and all the car wash and bake sale customers!"
