Edina, MN – October 5, 2020 – Minnesota Bank & Trust announced today that it will donate $20,000 to Noble Academy 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 Stephen Bishop, Minnesota 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 Bishop. “Our hope is that these funds will give students access to the resources they need.”
Minnesota Bank & Trust’s mission is to enrich lives in its communities. Earlier this year, Minnesota Bank & Trust contributed $100,000 to the Minnesota Disaster Recovery Fund (MDRF) for Coronavirus, TreeHouse, YMCA Twin Cities and Second Harvest Heartland in support of their response to challenges created by COVID-19.News Minnesota Bank & Trust Donates $20,000 to Noble Academy
