Lubbock, TX – October 5, 2020 – FirstBank & Trust announced today that it will donate $20,000 to Tahoka ISD 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 Greg Garland, President of FirstBank & 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 Garland “Our hope is that these funds will give students access to the resources they need.”
FirstBank & Trust’s mission is to enrich lives in its communities. Earlier this year, FirstBank & Trust contributed $100,000 to Lubbock to the Community Foundation of West Texas’ South Plains COVID-19 Response Fund, the YWCA and Open Door of Lubbock with additional donations in other West Texas communities in support of their response to challenges created by COVID-19.News FirstBank & Trust Donates $20,000 to Tahoka ISD Elementary School
