Marquette Bank Celebrates Halloween with Neighborhood Service Projects
Neighborhood Bank helps local organization while providing Halloween fun
Orland Park, IL (November 2, 2012) –– Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, continued its tradition of reaching out to community organizations during the fall season by providing candy and toys to the Port Ministries in Chicago, donating pumpkins to the New Horizon Center in Chicago and visiting sick children at Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn. All activities were part of the bank’s Marquette Neighborhood Commitment. “Halloween season is a busy time for Marquette Neighborhood Commitment service projects,” Christie Cox, Director of Neighborhood, said. “Our employees are always looking for ways to help out local community groups and Halloween is the perfect time of year to brighten the lives of people living in our community. For the second year, the bank held their Halloween Treat Project, which helps the Port Ministries, a multi-faceted ministry for disadvantaged and homeless families in Chicago. Marquette Bank employees purchased candy and small toys for over 50 Halloween treat boxes that were donated to children who participate in Port Ministries programs. Marquette Bank also purchased enough candy for 200 bags that were packed by employee volunteers for the Port Ministries bread truck to distribute to children living in disadvantaged neighborhoods on the south side of Chicago. New Horizon Center in Chicago, an agency that provides educational programs and services to children and adults with developmental disabilities and autism, received pumpkins donated by Marquette Bank and used the pumpkins as a craft activity for participants in its Adult Developmental Training Program. Last, Marquette Bank continued a three-year tradition with the Hearts for Hope program at Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn, where bank employees dressed up in Halloween costumes, visited sick children staying in the hospital on Halloween and handed out special treats to the children.
