Surprise Check Donations Totaling $4,501 to 21 Lawrence Schools


Surprise Check Donations Totaling $4,501 to 21 Lawrence Schools

Envista is kicking off International Credit Union Week, October 16-20, introducing a "Roots of Kindness" campaign. Our dedication extends far beyond the realm of traditional banking, and we are passionate about nurturing the community and fostering a ripple effect of kindness. We have been actively cultivating a culture of kindness, and to start the celebration, we had the pleasure of surprising 21 Lawrence schools with a check donation.

Giving began at the Annual Lawrence Chamber event, Taste of Lawrence, where we invited members, the community, educators and students to step into the Envista "Cash for Class" money machine at our booth. Inside the money machine, participants had mere seconds to collect as many dollars as they could. These dollars, generously collected, were earmarked for a donation to the Lawrence school of their choice. Moved by the overwhelming response, 170 individuals took up the challenge. In the end, a total of $4,501 was gathered, and this sum was then distributed to the 21 Lawrence schools the week prior to International Credit Union Week.

The following Lawrence schools were the deserving donation recipients:

  • Community Connections at Pinckney (previously Pinckney Elementary School)
  • Cordley Elementary School
  • Deerfield Elementary School
  • Friends of Raintree (Raintree Montessori School)
  • Hillcrest Elementary School
  • Kennedy Early Childhood Center
  • Langston Hughes Elementary School
  • Lawrence College & Career Center
  • Lawrence Free State High School
  • Lawrence High School
  • Lawrence Juvenile Detention Center Day School
  • Liberty Memorial Central Middle School
  • New York Elementary School
  • Prairie Park Elementary School
  • Quail Run Elementary School
  • Schwegler Elementary School
  • Southwest Middle School
  • Sunflower Elementary School
  • Sunset Hills Elementary School
  • West Middle School
  • Woodlawn Elementary School

"International Credit Union Week serves as a reminder of the Envista Difference, the promises we make to our members and community, and how we take care of people. These educational institutions play a vital role in shaping the future of our community and they embody the seeds of growth and opportunity. Nurturing these seeds is a privilege and Envista is committed to supporting the community by empowering these schools and contributing to the growth of our shared future," said Erika McNeill, Engagement Coordinator at Envista.
