Dubuque, IA – October 5, 2020 – Dubuque Bank and Trust (DB&T) announced today that it will donate $20,000 to Prescott Elementary School 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 Lynn “Tut” Fuller, President and CEO of Dubuque Bank and Trust. “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 Fuller. “Our hope is that these funds will give students access to the resources they need.”
DB&T’s mission is to enrich lives in its communities. Earlier this year, DB&T, along with parent company Heartland Financial USA, Inc., contributed $200,000 to the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque’s Disaster Recovery Fund to help people most impacted by the outbreak, including seniors and low-income residents.News Dubuque Bank and Trust Donates $20,000 to Prescott Elementary School
