Earlier this year, Green Belt Bank & Trust and Chris and Jessie Weaver issued a challenge to the Iowa Falls-Alden Band Boosters: raise $10,000 in donations every year for five years, and have that money matched each year - $5,000 from the bank and $5,000 from the Weavers. If the boosters could do it, they'd be able to infuse the growing program with $100,000.

Band Together Donation

Iowa Falls-Alden High School band director Jeff Schmitt (right) accepts a check from Chris Weaver, owner and board chairman of Green Belt Bank & Trust. The Weaver family and Green Belt Bank & Trust initiated a fundraiser earlier this year that matches $10,000 in donations with a $10,000 gift each year for five years. The check amount of $50,000 represents the bank's and Weavers' commitment this year and the next four years.
