Four Treasure Valley animal shelters recently received surprise donations. More than $1,500 was collected and donated to the Idaho Humane Society in Boise, Helping Idaho Dogs, Inc. in Eagle, the Meridian Valley Humane Society, and Pet Haven Cat Adoption Center in Nampa, during the one-day bank promotion, known as the Big Day.

The Big Day is a quarterly, themed event offering customers a free gift to open a new checking account. The most recent event featured a pet theme, and customers were invited to bring their pets in for treats and fun activities and received a $10 gift to open a new account, with the option of donating the money to their favorite pet organization.
