    Orland Park, IL (March 13, 2013) –– Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, recently helped those in need through its annual Neighborhood Coat and Shoe Drive, an employee-driven effort to benefit local organizations. . Around 100 coats and over 200 pairs of shoes were collected throughout January and February and given to neighborhood nonprofits.

    “Not all individuals can afford to buy new coats and shoes during the cold winter months and we work with great organizations to make sure the less fortunate are able to stay warm during the winter,” Betty Kosky-Harn, Executive Vice President, said. “We would like to thank all of our employees who donated coats and shoes for this great cause.”

    Below is a list of nonprofits that benefitted from Marquette’s Bank Neighborhood Coat and Shoe Drive: 

    • Calvary Church (Orland Park)
    • Englewood Cares Outreach Ministries (Chicago)
    • Hesed House (Aurora)
    • Latino Organization of the Southwest (Chicago)
    • Metropolitan Family Services (Chicago)

    The annual Neighborhood Coat and Shoe Drive is part of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment where each quarter the bank focuses on a different area of need – shelter, hunger, education and health/wellness.
