Marquette Bank Employees Support Local Shelter OrganizationsMarquette Neighborhood Commitment wraps up shelter quarter activities, including employee volunteering and fundraising
Orland Park, IL (April 10, 2013) – Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, completed fundraising and volunteer activities to support local shelter organizations during the first quarter of 2013. Through the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment, the bank assisted 14 shelter and welfare organizations with various employee fundraisers and volunteer projects, resulting in more than 250 completed volunteer hours, over $8,400 in employee-donated funds and over 1,200 meals prepared for shelter guests. “Through our Marquette Neighborhood Commitment, we are able to team up with some local shelter organizations and help make a difference in our neighborhoods through our volunteer efforts and service projects,” Betty Kosky-Harn, Executive Vice President, said. “We would like to thank all of our employees who donated their time and gave money to help those in need.” Each year, the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment gives back to the community in specific areas of need including shelter, hunger, education and health/wellness. During the first quarter, the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment focused its efforts on shelter organizations. Fundraising activities included a neighborhood coat and shoe drive, bake sale, pancake breakfast, employee jeans days and a pet supplies drive. Employees also prepared lunches and dinners at the South Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) and cooked dinner for over 85 guests at the St. Blasé Supper Kitchen in Summit. Additionally, bank employees filled over 200 Easter baskets with donated candy and small toys for the Port Ministries, which were distributed to less fortunate children on the south side of Chicago.
