POINT PLEASANT — People’s Bank and its “Season of Giving” wraps up with a final nominee who is known for his kindness in the tri-county area.
Al Sines is known as a friend to many and someone who is always willing to lend a helping hand. He works diligently in his local church, serving many people from Mason County, and Gallia and Meigs counties in Ohio. Sines has often taken money from his own pocket to help someone in need.
John Machir nominated Sines for recognition during the “Season of Giving.” Machir was a beneficiary of Sines’ kindness in the past year. Machir says when he became unemployed, Sines showed great compassion to him and his family.
Peoples Bank started its “Season of Giving” campaign to give back to local individuals making a difference within their families and communities.
All nomination letters were to be 25o words or less and received by Nov. 23 with four nominees receiving a $500 Visa prepaid gift card from Peoples Bank for Christmas.
It’s been reported from Peoples Bank officials that Sines has already given away his $500 to other worthy causes needing a hand this Christmas.
In all, the “Season of Giving” recognized single mom Randi Williams, who is known for giving back to her family and fellow employees; Derek Raike, a young athlete who showed what sportsmanship is all about; and young parents J.D. and Molly Holstein, who struggled with illness as well as the adoption process, and who recently became the parents of a newborn baby boy.
All nominees are from the immediate area, keeping the “Season of Giving” local in every possible way.
