New Mexico Bank & Trust announced today it will donate $20,000 to Dolores Gonzales Elementary School in Albuquerque.

“This week we celebrated World Teachers’ Day, a day dedicated to recognizing teachers for the important work they do to help our children learn, grow and succeed,” said Greg Leyendecker, President and CEO of New Mexico Bank & Trust. “It also serves as a reminder that this is a particularly challenging year for many of our K-12 schools, teachers and students.”

Through its partnership with the national non-profit organization AdoptAClassroom.org, the funds are intended for the school to purchase much-needed tools and materials, so they can successfully and safely continue to operate.

“Whether school is taking place in the classroom or remotely from home, the need for additional school supplies, especially personal protective equipment (PPE) and technology is significant,” said Leyendecker. “Our hope is that these funds will give students access to the resources they need.”

New Mexico Bank & Trust’s mission is to enrich lives in their communities. Earlier this year, New Mexico Bank & Trust contributed a total of $100,000 to YMCA of Central New Mexico; Albuquerque Community Foundation/United Way of Central New Mexico – Emergency Action Fund; United Way of Santa Fe County – COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund; Santa Fe Community Foundation – COVID-19 Response Fund; and United Way of Eastern New Mexico in support of their response to challenges created by COVID-19.
