Sunflower Bank sets a goal to donate $50,000 to Make-A-Wish®
Sunflower Bank is partnering with Make-A-Wish® to help fulfill the wishes of local children with life-threatening medical conditions. Sunflower has set a goal to donate $50,000 to Make-A-Wish chapters serving the Sunflower communities in Kansas, Colorado and Missouri. To reach this goal, Sunflower will donate 5˘ for every swipe of a Sunflower Bank debit card, now through June 30, 2015.
“We are thrilled to partner with Make-A-Wish,” said Mollie Carter, president and CEO of Sunflower Bank. “I can think of nothing more important than helping the children in our communities’ dreams come true with the assistance of Make-A-Wish. We are fortunate to be in a position to help.”
Sunflower Bank works with organizations and schools in their communities to provide them much needed attention and resources. In addition, Sunflower team members volunteer several thousand hours of service each year.
“Make-A-Wish Colorado is privileged to provide these families with the opportunity to forget about the reality of their situation for a moment as they experience the joy of a child’s one true wish,” said Jeff Krebs, associate director of philanthropy of Make-A-Wish Colorado. “Each wish carries with it the hope, strength and joy to inspire our wish kids, their families and every other person involved. “
A child can be referred to Make-A-Wish by an immediate family member, guardian, healthcare professional, or a child can refer themselves. Following referral, a certified medical professional must verify that the child has a life-threatening medical condition. Make-A-Wish volunteers work with the family to ensure the wish is memorable for the wish kid and their family.
The Make-A-Wish Colorado chapter will be the beneficiary of all funds raised in Colorado. Customers and non-customers can also make donations to Make-A-Wish Colorado at any Sunflower Bank branch.
