We are so grateful for the continued support of Old National Bank. We are able to have yard signs this year thanks to their generous donations.

2021 HIGHTS

  1. We collected 300 pounds of school supplies from John H Castle and Chandler Elementary School.
  2. We donated all of the unused school supplies to support children in need in Warrick County.

3, We donate all of the gently used school supplies to local teachers. We could reach more teachers and schools this year — 13 teachers from Elbefeld, Chandler, Oakdale elementary schools, Tecumseh High School, and Noah’s Ark preschool.

We were able to support international students at USI too.

4. We UPCYCLED crayons, using all of the old and broken crayons (30 pounds in total) to raise money for local teachers through our [Crayon recycling program].

5. We raised $300 and provided $100 grants to three local teachers to support their educational spending through our [Grant program].
