"Security Bank enjoys doing things to help kids in the community," said Justin Gates. "We look forward to sponsoring this program every year. Our board has really gotten behind the long-term partnership we have with this program that helps these kids succeed."
Security Bank's donation to the program allows each Mighty Mite participant to receive a customized jersey featuring their individual name and number. Players keep their jerseys at the end of the football season each year.
"This is a great program," said Gates. "It benefits a lot of kids who have the opportunity to play a sport they love and be a part of a team."
This year, 111 kids benefited from the bank's sponsorship. Over the last seven years, Security Bank has helped the league provide around 800 players with jerseys.
