The doors are now open at our newest branch in Springfield.  The new addition is located at 3184 E. Sunshine and we’ll be celebrating throughout the next several weeks with events, contests, food and fun.  Join us!

Support Your School & Win a NEW iPad

Arvest Bank in Springfield has partnered with the three nearest elementary schools in proximity to the newest branch—Pershing Elementary, Pittman Elementary, and Wilder Elementary.  For the next three weeks, you are invited to come in to the Sunshine branch and vote for your favorite school and your favorite hand-decorated tote bag!  The tote bags feature artwork by the fourth and fifth graders from each school. 

The school with most votes wins a pizza party for their fourth/fifth grade classes and the student with the winning tote bag from each school will get an Arvest Savings account with $50 in it.  Also, by voting, you'll be entered to win a third generation iPad and for every vote, Arvest will donate $1 to that school. 

Week 1, March 26 – Pershing Elementary
Week 2, April 2 – Pittman Elementary
Week 3, April 9 – Wilder Elementary
