PlainsCapital Bank in Fort Worth Makes Financial Donation for H.O.P.E. Farm's Annual Mother's Day Dinner

H.O.P.E. Farm, a nonprofit organization for at-risk boys in Fort Worth, hosted their annual Mother’s Day dinner at a volunteer’s private residence on May 9. More than 55 mothers and grandmothers attended the event which has become an annual tradition to honor the women who serve as positive, inspirational role models for the boys of H.O.P.E. Farm. PlainsCapital Bank’s generous donation helped cover expenses including flowers, decorations, party favors, table rentals and an on-site personal chef who prepared the night’s delicious meal.

H.O.P.E. Farm specifically targets at-risk boys from single-parent homes who lack a positive male influence in their lives. The youth enter the program between the ages of 5 and 7 and the program is designed to nurture them through high school. Understanding the importance of parent involvement, H.O.P.E. Farm works directly with each boy’s mother to create accountability, consistency, spiritual development and encouragement.

“I feel honored to work for a company that’s committed to giving back to organizations like H.O.P.E. Farm,” said Kami Bedford, commercial loan officer for PlainsCapital Bank in Fort Worth and volunteer at the Mother’s Day dinner. “This particular event was extra special because it honors the mothers and grandmothers who go above and beyond to serve as positive role models for these young boys who lack a father figure in their lives.”

The Upward Momentum team in Fort Worth including Kami Bedford, Andy Friederichs, Jim Vineyard and Erin Rowton, has chosen to partner with H.O.P.E. Farm as part of their service project to teach personal financial literacy to middle school students.
