Ragland Volunteers for Community Baby Shower
On September 22nd Teola Ragland, Personal Banker for First Freedom's Gainesboro office, volunteered for a community baby shower hosted by the UT Extension office.
This event is put together twice a year by the UT Extension office. The UT Extension office serves the citizens of Jackson County with educational programs in the areas of Agriculture, Family and Consumer Sciences, Community Resource Development, and 4-H Youth Development. They are an outreach branch of the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture.
This community baby shower is open to the public and is an opportunity to talk to parents about car seat safety, crib safety and safe sleeping habits. First Freedom donated one of the door prize that was given to the families in need.
