BankTexas is hosting the first Kasasa Gives Back Shop in conjunction with the City of Mineola this weekend.

On Saturday December 8th, Mineola Mayor Bo Whitus will announce the opening of the Kasasa Gives Back Shop, which will take place before the Christmas parade. At the shop, Bank Texas will be handing out over 300 gift cards to favorite local businesses to folks in the community in exchange for a pledge to volunteer at a Mineola charity.

BankTexas officials say they believe in investing in the community and by creating the Kasasa Gives Back Shop, they are able to inspire citizens to spend their dollars and time in local businesses and charities.

Kasasa is the first and only collection of free checking accounts that put account holders first by rewarding them with what interests them most high interest and automatic savings. Kasasa is exclusively available at America’s preferred community banking providers, including Mineola’s Bank Texas.
