Branson Bank delivered several heaping bags of school supplies to Forsyth Schools during their annual Back to School teacher and staff luncheon.
In an effort to support area teachers, Branson Bank began collecting school supplies at all three of their bank locations to distribute directly to the schools and teachers when needs may arise. Supplies and monetary donations were accepted to support the effort. Branson Bank would like to publicly thank the Elks Lodge of Taney County and Bass Pro Shops, Branson due to each of their generous donations.
“Teachers are the first to notice and handle the needs of their students,” said Bill Jones, President at Branson Bank. “Our community does a great job of offering FREE supplies through many local non-profit efforts, but there are some students that can’t attend these events simply due to lack of transportation. Putting these supplies directly in the hands of area teachers will ensure that distribution is fair and accessible to all students.”
In addition to Forsyth Schools, Branson Bank will be distributing the remaining supplies to Branson, Hollister, Kirbyville, Taneyville, and Bradleyville Schools shortly.
