Gateway Gives: Back-to-School Drive

Our Back-to-School Drive is part of the Gateway Gives program we have established here at Gateway Bank. Throughout the months of July and August we collect donations at our Mendota Heights and Edina branches that we then donate to the elementary schools within our communities. 

At Gateway, we know how important early education is to our future leaders. That's why we want to provide our local classrooms with supplies that will help our teachers and students be successful. 

Ideas for donations include: 

   • Pencils and Pens                  
   • Notebooks
   • Crayons
   • Backpacks
   • Paper
   • Highlighters
   • Pencil Pouches
   • Erasers
   • Rulers
   • Books
   • Disinfecting Wipes
   • Sharpies

• Tissues
• Hand Sanitizer
• Glue Sticks
• Colored Pencils
