Heartland Financial USA, Inc. and Member Banks Contribute More Than $260K to High-Need Schools in Our Communities
October 5, 2020 — Dubuque, IA — Heartland Financial USA, Inc. (NASDAQ: HTLF) and its member banks announced contributions totaling more than $260,000 to high-need schools in the communities they serve.
“Today is World Teachers’ Day, dedicated to recognizing teachers for the important work they do to help our children learn, grow and succeed,” said Bruce K. Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer. “It also serves as a reminder that this is a particularly challenging time for many of our K-12 schools, teachers and students.”
Through its partnership with the national nonprofit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org, each member bank donated $20,000 to a high-need school in its community and Heartland contributed additional funds.
“Whether learning is taking place in the classroom or remotely, the burden and added expense for teachers and schools due to COVID-19 is enormous,” said Lee. “There’s a particular need for PPE and technology and our assistance can help schools purchase these items.”
Heartland’s mission is to enrich lives in its communities. Earlier this year, Heartland and its member banks contributed $1.2 million to nonprofit organizations in their communities that are leading the response to challenges created by COVID-19.
