October 6, 2020 — Overland Park, KS — Bank of Blue Valley announced today it will donate $20,000 to Fairview Elementary School located in Olathe, KS.

“This week we celebrated World Teachers’ Day, a day dedicated to recognizing teachers for the important work they do to help our children learn, grow and succeed,” said Wendy Reynolds, Bank of Blue Valley President. “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 non-profit 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 Reynolds. “Our hope is that these funds will give students access to the resources they need.”

Bank of Blue Valley’s mission is to enrich lives in their communities. Earlier this year Bank of Blue Valley contributed a total of $100,000 to Advent Health Foundation, Harvesters Community Food Network, Greater KC Foundation, and Northeast Kansas Fire and Ambulatory Services in support of their response to challenges created by COVID-19.
