Tuesday, April 23rd was a lovely spring day in front of Associated Bank in downtown Sturgeon Bay. The bank responded to a grant application for Altrusa’s 2019 Back-to-School Fair with a very generous donation of $3000.00. Altrusan Cheri Meyvis applied for the funds, and Altrusan Anita Karwowski (photo center) accepted the check. Pictured left and right of Anita, are Bill Kopka, Associated’s Community Accountability Officer - visiting from the Milwaukee office, and Julie Dragseth, Residential Loan Officer at the Sturgeon Bay branch. Associated Bank is especially interested in supporting programs that involve literacy - which partners well with Altrusa’s focus. At the Fair in early August, Associated’s grant will provide grade-level school supplies to disadvantaged Door County children returning to school in the fall. Altrusa hopes to serve close to 650 children this year, and deeply appreciates the financial support from Associated Bank.
