Get to Know Angela Meraz

Helping when there’s hopelessness

Angela Meraz, senior vice president and New Castle branch manager, celebrates a silver anniversary with Alpine Bank in 2019. Her reputation as a solid performer, team leader and customer service pro at the bank is rivaled only by the size of her heart.

Angela takes her can-do attitude with her as a board member for the River Center in New Castle. This nonprofit identifies and addresses unmet needs in the community with compassionate volunteerism. The staff and volunteers have 12 outreach programs annually, including the Angel Tree and Community Garden. And they work hard every day to ensure that kids in the community aren’t going hungry, or they’re lending a hand to help people get on their feet.

“It’s a group of individuals who just want to help make things a little better when there is a feeling of hopelessness,” says Angela. “The River Center program really spoke to my heart.” When Angela isn’t working or volunteering, you’ll likely find her motoring her kids to sporting events all around Colorado. And when they get an occasional break from the sports season’s demands, the Meraz family is camping and exploring the outdoors.
