MidWestOne Bank employees in Fairfield, once again this year, delivered school supplies to Fairfield elementary schools and Sieda Community Action.

The bank employees held a school supply drive and contributed their third-quarter “jeans” money to the effort. The employees donate $10 a month to wear jeans on Fridays, and the money is donated to selected causes, explained Shirley Smith, personal banker at MidWestOne Bank.

With those funds, plus a match from Walmart, the bank was able to buy and deliver more than $300 in school supplies to Pence and Washington elementary schools and Sieda.

Today was the first day of classes for the 2017-18 academic year in the Fairfield Community School District.
