2020 Kansas #500forGood Winners

 

 

COLORADO KANSAS NEBRASKA OKLAHOMA  ‚Äč

 

Bank of Hays
Hays, Kansas
Holy Family Elementary in Hays, Kansas, is working to implement STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Music) instruction across the curriculum at all grade levels. To make the many supplies and materials available to classroom teachers, the school is creating mobile STEAM carts stocked with a variety of educational tools and supplies (marbles, coding robots, popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, etc.). The $500 will be used to help purchase and stock the STEAM carts, so students can more easily engage in hands-on learning opportunities.
 

 

Kansas Teacher’s Credit Union
Pittsburg, Kansas
In 2019, staff at the Kansas Teacher’s Credit Union helped the Salvation Army distribute gifts to low-income children in the community. One eight-year-old boy at the event did not open his gift. When asked why, the boy said he was saving the present for Christmas because it would be the only gift he received that year. The local Salvation Army is once again providing Christmas gifts to needy families in 2020. Unfortunately, the need this year may exceed their resources. The donation from #500forGood will help ensure every boy and girl has something to open for the holidays.

 

Impact Bank
Wellington, Kansas
AAHN’s Place (AP) in Wellington, Kansas, is a residential group home for children ages 10 to 18. Kids often arrive at AP with just the clothes on their back after they are placed in care, many times for abuse or neglect. With $500, Impact Bank will work with AP to provide Christmas gifts, fund recreational activities or purchase entertainment equipment that would otherwise not be in the budget. In short, they will use the $500 to help show the kids that there are people out there who care.

 

Farmers & Drovers Bank
Council Grove, Kansas
Farmers and Drovers Bank in Council Grove, Kansas, plans to match the #500forGood funds and use the money to purchase gift cards from local businesses. The gift cards will be given to the employees at the Morris County Hospital, EMS and local clinic to thank them for their commitment to the community during the pandemic.
 

 

FNB Washington
Washington, Kansas

KSDS Assistance Dogs, Inc., is an organization in Washington, Kansas, that provides canine partners free of charge to individuals in need. FNB Washington will donate the $500 to the agency to help match a service or guide dog to a new recipient and continue ongoing training for owners, animals and volunteers.
