• Marquette Bank Holds Fundraiser for Southern Illinois Tornado Victims


    Local bank donates nearly $3,000 to American Red Cross for victims of Southern Illinois Tornado on Leap Day


    Orland Park, IL (March 9, 2012) –– Employees of Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, recently held a fundraiser for the victims of the deadly February 29th EF4 tornado that impacted the Harrisburg area in southern Illinois. Employees at all 24 Marquette Bank locations held a Special Jeans Day Fundraiser where employees wore jeans and made a donation. The Bank matched the money raised resulting in a total donation of $2,900 to the American Red Cross Winter 2012 Disaster Relief Fund.


    “After seeing the devastation from the tornado that hit our southern Illinois neighbors, many of our employees were compelled to respond and requested the bank organize an event to raise funds for the victims,” said Christie Cox, Director of Neighborhood. “We are fortunate to have compassionate and engaged employees here at the Bank.”


    This special fundraising event is part of the Bank’s Marquette Neighborhood Commitment activities related to Shelter. Each quarter, the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment focuses on a different community need including Shelter, Hunger, Education and Health/Wellness.
