the partnering business and school.
A long-time and invaluable partner of Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida,
CNLBank reached out to the organization to connect them to a school that would
benefit greatly from the company’s annual Adopt-A -School Supply Drive. Junior
Achievement of Southwest Florida made the introduction between CNLBank and
Bonita Springs Elementary School and the fundraising efforts commenced. Through-
out the months of July and August, CNLBank raised supplies to fulfill the school’s wish
list of necessary school materials, including writing utensils, notebooks, folders, binders
and other various supplies. Through the support of CNLBank’s employees, clients and
associates, the company presented Bonita Springs Elementary School with five to 10
packages or boxes of every item on the school’s wish list.
“One of our core values is to respect the dignity of every individual. The associates
at CNLBank do a wonderful job demonstrating our commitment to this core value by
participating in community partnerships such as our annual Adopt-A -School Supply
Drive and volunteering to teach Junior Achievement programs,” said Katherine Carter,
senior vice president and business development officer of CNLBank. “Our involvement
in this process with Junior Achievment and Bonita Springs Elementary School has
strengthened and enriched the workplace environment at CNLBank.”
“My teachers were overwhelmed with the generosity of CNLBank and feel quite
fortunate for the company’s kindness,” said Susan Caputo, principal of Bonita Springs
Elementary School. “Many of our parents cannot buy the needed supplies for their
children and it would be a challenge for our school to purchase all school supplies for
the students. Because of this generous donation, our children have received the sup-
plies needed for their school year.”
CNLBank will continue its partnership with Junior Achievement of Southwest
Florida and Bonita Springs Elementary School through the JA In A Day program. CN-
LBank will volunteer at the elementary school during the fourth quarter of the school
year in order to teach a half-day workshop that includes speaking to the students about
entrepreneurship to help them learn the tools and fundamentals of business.
