As a local community bank, Alliance Bank believes in giving back to those in need. One way is by participating in the Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce Adopt-A-School program. As a proud supporter and sponsor of Alma Schrader School, employees collected school supplies on August 1, 2014. Through the numerous donations from the Alliance Bank team in Cape, we were able to provide the school with three large tubs of supplies filled with pen, pencils, glue, notebooks, and backpacks. The supplies will help less fortunate children start school with the supplies they need to succeed! It’s a wonderful thing to not only support the community, but to help children get off to a good start to the school year. Alliance Bank will continue to support Alma Schrader School throughout the school year.
The mission of the Adopt-A-School program is to unite businesses and the community with schools for the common goal of increasing the quality of education for all students in the Cape Girardeau area. Students in all of our area schools can stand to benefit greatly from the interaction and exposure from our local chamber members. By becoming a partner, we are enlightening students as to what it means to be a productive citizen in the Cape Girardeau community.
