A birthday gift for others
It’s not every day you turn 29 for the 11th time, so Chrissy Potts, manager of our Sunset banking office in Piqua, wants her milestone birthday to be truly meaningful.
Leading up to the big day, Chrissy has been peppered by friends and family on what gifts she wants. Instead, she asked anyone attending her party to bring a canned good, which she plans to donate to the Bethany Center.
“At Unity we’re always volunteering locally, and the Bethany Center is one of the places we’ve been able to help out the past few years,” Chrissy said. “We serve in the soup kitchen, and a couple times a month we donate money to wear jeans on a Friday, and some of that money goes to the food pantry.”
The Bethany Center has helped more than 20,000 people in 2017. The opportunity to pay it forward appealed to Chrissy, who also rings the bell for the Salvation Army kettle and speaks to local kids about responsible banking and being community leaders.
“I just want to do something nice,” Chrissy said. “Working at Unity has been such a great influence on my desire to give back and serve the community.”
