Salina, KS – Sunflower Bank has raised $39,221.79 for Make-A-Wish Kansas.  Sunflower customers and non-customers alike helped by making donations to Make-A-Wish at their local Sunflower Bank branches.

“We were 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.”

As part of Sunflower Bank’s commitment to supporting the communities they serve, they partnered with local Make-A-Wish chapters from April 1st through June 30th to raise funds and awareness for this important cause. In addition to supporting organizations like Make-A-Wish, Sunflower team members also volunteer several thousand hours of service each year in their communities. 

“Sunflower Bank embodies the spirit of a true community partner,” said Dr. April S. Abernethy, CEO of Make-A-Wish Kansas. “We are overwhelmed with the generosity its members across the state have shown to us during this campaign.”

A child with a life-threatening medical condition can be referred to Make-A-Wish by an immediate family member, guardian, healthcare professional, or the child. Make-A-Wish volunteers work with the family to ensure the wish is a memorable experience for the child and their family.
