• Marquette Bank Employees Volunteer and Prepare Meals for South Suburban PADS        

    Neighborhood bank employees help feed families in need through food donations and volunteering

    Orland Park, IL (May 17, 2012) – Since 2008, employees of Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, have been regularly volunteering monthly at the South Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter). South Suburban PADS is a program which provides shelter and support services to the homeless in the south suburbs. Between October 2011 and April 2012, employees of Marquette Bank volunteered to help feed those in need on the third Wednesday of each month at Our Lady of the Ridge Catholic Church in Chicago Ridge. Bank volunteers participated as part of the monthly Cook Team – made up of eight to twelve employees – who purchase, prepare and serve meals to more than seventy guests.

    “Our employees continue to be dedicated to helping those less fortunate and strengthening the community through their volunteerism and service,” said Betty Kosky-Harn, Executive Vice President.

    Marquette Bank also packs weekly lunches for South Suburban PADS through the Lunch Program. Each week a different Marquette Bank branch packs 75 sack lunches consisting of a sandwich, drink, fruit and snack and delivers them to South Suburban PADS. Some Marquette Bank employees purchase the food for the lunches and others spend time making the sandwiches and packing the lunches.

    Marquette Bank would like to encourage those who are able to help South Suburban PADS to donate online at www.sspads.org or call 1-708-754-4357 to learn more about volunteer opportunities.

    Marquette Bank’s support of South Suburban PADS is part of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment where each quarter the Bank focuses on a different area of need – shelter, hunger, education and health/well-being.
