KSSB would like to thank First National Bank for their generous contribution, in the amount of $20,000.00, to our Blind All-Stars Foundation for our Vocational and Independent Living Programs! The grant will allow us to expand our services and programs to ensure that students with visual impairments have opportunities to work, live, and recreate as full participants in their chosen communities. First National Bank awarded a total of $1,840,000 in community development grants in 2016 to organizations across its seven-state service area, and KSSB, via the Blind-All Stars, is grateful to be selected. We will provide examples of how this grant is making a difference on our Facebook page.
