The coloring sheets were displayed the week before Easter with K-1st and 4th - 5th grade at the Alsbury location and 2nd - 3rd grade at the Wilshire location. Coloring sheets were judged by advanced art students from BHS and CHS on April 16th. 1st - 6th place winners in each of those three categories can be found on our Community page. Congratulations to Clinkscale Elementary School for winning the overall participation award and $400 for their school library!

The bank will be making courtesy phone calls to affected customers. We appreciate your patience during this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please call customer service at 817-295-0461.
Throughout November and early December, our staff has been collecting donations benefitting both Harvest House’s Holiday Friends and Heart for the Kids’ Christmas Program to help feed families in need and provide toys and clothes to children. The red paper candy canes we had on the windows designated donations from contributors. As an annual tradition, employees of First National Bank of Burleson are encouraged to participate in the holiday fundraising campaigns. In addition to collecting monetary donations, the Bank “adopts” a family during Thanksgiving and then another family during Christmas. Employees will buy groceries and other necessities for each needy family to ensure they are not forgotten during the holiday season. Both locations also had angel trees with children needing toys for Christmas through the Holiday Friends campaign at Harvest House and through the Christmas Program at Heart for the Kids. Thank you to all of our customers and employees for your contributions!
The second annual "Battle for the Boot"
Through Heart for the Kids' Back to School Program, First National Bank of Burleson "adopted" two local sisters and bought all of their school supplies as well as school uniforms and clothes from head to toe. For more information on Heart for the Kids or their Back to School Program, click here.
Thank you for helping First National Bank of Burleson become a Top 3 fundraising team in Burleson this year for Relay for Life. With your help, we raised over $10,600 to go towards the fight against cancer!
