MANILA – Arvest Bank hosted an open house event for customers and prospective customers Oct. 15 to learn more about the bank’s suite of products and services. As part of the open house, and as a new member of the Manila community, Arvest associates presented a donation to the Riverside and Manila School Districts in the amount of $500 each. The donation will go towards the school districts’ backpack programs that provides food for hungry children on the weekends when other resources are not available.

Arvest associates also provided a catered lunch featuring barbeque sandwiches from Big Butts BBQ to serve to attendees.
