Phoenix, AZ – October 5, 2020 – Arizona Bank & Trust, a member of Heartland Financial USA, Inc. (NASDAQ: HTLF), announced today that it will donate $20,000 to Academy of Math and Science – Camelback on World Teachers’ Day.
“World Teachers’ Day is dedicated to recognizing teachers for the important work they do to help our children learn, grow and succeed,” said Bill Callahan, Arizona Bank & Trust's President and CEO. “It also serves as a reminder that this is a particularly challenging year for many of our K-12 schools, teachers and students.”
Through its partnership with the national nonprofit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org, the funds are intended for the school to purchase much-needed tools and materials, so they can successfully and safely continue to operate.
“Whether school is taking place in the classroom or remotely from home, the need for additional school supplies, especially personal protective equipment (PPE), and technology is significant,” said Callahan. “Our hope is that these funds will give students access to the resources they need.”
Arizona Bank & Trust's mission is to enrich lives in its communities. Earlier this year, Arizona Bank & Trust contributed $100,000 to St. Vincent de Paul’s Family Relief Fund, Chicanos Por La Causa, and Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona in support of their response to challenges created by COVID-19.News Arizona Bank & Trust Donates $20,000 to Academy of Math and Science – Camelback
