City National Provides Schools in Eight States With School Supply Kits for At-Risk Students

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — City National Bank, America’s Premier Private and Business BankSM, announced that it is donating over 3,600 school supply kits to schools in eight states as part of its 12th Annual Back-to-School Drive held this month. The bank is donating these school supplies to 37 elementary schools and nonprofit organizations in California, Nevada, New York, Georgia, Tennessee, Minnesota, Florida, and Washington, D.C.
City National’s Back-to-School Supplies Drive began in 2008 as part of its Reading is The way up® literacy program, which was launched in 2002 in an effort to help put more books into school libraries in California. Since that time both of these and other educational outreach programs have been expanded to schools in other states as part of City National’s growing footprint.“Due to the challenges we’re facing this year with COVID-19, the bank decided to cover all of the cost with our Back-to-School Supplies Drive,” said Jennifer Nickerson, senior vice president and corporate citizenship manager for City National. “Even though a lot of students throughout the country are doing online learning, they still need school supplies to help them succeed in their academic endeavors. We focus on the students with the most need and so the supplies are provided to students and their parents when they come to the school to pick up their free and reduced price school meals. Proper nutrition along with having adequate school supplies are paramount to a child’s success academically.”The school supply kits City National donated to schools include erasers, highlighters, round-tip scissors, packs of wide ruled paper, colored pencils, folders, notebooks, pencil sharpeners, rulers, boxes of crayons, glue sticks, #2 pencils, three-ring binders, and more. Colleagues in the bank’s mailroom really stepped up in helping pack and ship hundreds of boxes filled with school supplies to the various schools receiving them.Following is a list of the schools and nonprofit organizations that are receiving backpacks filled with school supplies.CaliforniaJohn Marshall Elementary, AnaheimWinnetka Elementary, Canoga ParkMeadow Homes Elementary, ConcordAllesandro Elementary, Los AngelesAtwater Elementary, Los AngelesCarthay School of Environmental Studies Magnet, Los AngelesCrete Academy, Los AngelesEducating Young Minds, Los AngelesGood Shepherd Shelter, Los AngelesLogan Street Elementary School, Los AngelesSolano Avenue Elementary, Los AngelesLehigh Elementary, MontclairEast Bay Asian Youth Center, OaklandProject Access – Pacific Pointe, OxnardPadres – Unidos, Santa AnaFranklin Elementary, Santa BarbaraRancho Elementary, San DiegoRosa Parks Elementary, San FranciscoLowell Elementary, San JoseStonehurst Elementary, Sun ValleyConejo Elementary School, Thousand Oaks
