Denver, CO – October 6, 2020 – Citywide Banks announced today that it will donate $20,000 to Wyatt Academy.
“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 Joanne Sherwood, Citywide Banks' 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 Sherwood. “Our hope is that these funds will give students access to the resources they need.”
Citywide Banks’ mission is to enrich lives in its communities. Earlier this year, Citywide Banks contributed $100,000 to Denver Health Foundation, Denver Economic Development and Opportunity, and Food Bank of the Rockies in support of their response to challenges created by COVID-19.News Citywide Banks Donates $20,000 to Wyatt Academy
