Alpine Bank employee Tom Krabacher presents a check to Soda Creek Elementary School second-grader Jorin Peed. Along with fellow employees Jeremy Behling, David High and Adam Alspach, Krabacher grew a mustache to help Peed out with her medical expenses. People voted for their favorite or least favorite mustache by placing money in a jar. The check totaled $3,099.38. Jorin has been diagnosed with nephritic syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that causes her immune system to attack her kidneys. There is a benefit account in Jorin's name at Alpine Bank.
