VERONA — The 2018 Community Bank summer supply drive for Vernon-Verona-Sherrill school district students was a large success this year, the VVS district announced. Bank branch manager Willis Corney and assistant manager Lori Bartch delivered eight large boxes to the district, each one overflowing with supplies, backpacks, organizers and clothing, said the district.

“Our customers love these drives,” Corney said. “They are happy to donate supplies and give back to the community.”

VVS staff were excited to receive the items, the district said. “We serve students that have very diverse backgrounds, and many with high needs,” said middle school nurse Cindy Voelker. “It means so much to us to be able to provide these students with items that will help them be successful.”
