Fresno, CA – October 8, 2020 – Premier Valley Bank announced today that it will donate $20,000 to Roosevelt High School.
“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 Lo Nestman, President & CEO of Premier Valley Bank. “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 Nestman. “Our hope is that these funds will give students access to the resources they need.”
