Marquette Bank Launches 7th Annual Adopt-a-Soldier ProgramLocal bank continues tradition of sending holiday care packages to soldiers overseas
Orland Park, IL (Oct. 9, 2013) –– Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, invites customers and neighbors to participate in its 7th annual Adopt-a-Soldier program, which sends care packages to U.S. soldiers serving overseas. Now through Nov. 2, 2013, employees, customers and neighbors have the opportunity to donate items and to nominate Chicagoland soldiers to receive the care packages.
“We feel this is a great way to show our respect and gratitude to the troops while brightening their holiday season," Georgeanne Krueger, Assistant Vice President, said. “The Adopt-a-Soldier program has become a tradition at Marquette Bank and we hope that this year is our most successful program yet.”
You can fill out a form at any Marquette Bank location to nominate a soldier to receive a care package. Collection bins are also available and requested donation items are listed below by category.
In the past, local classrooms along with Girl and Boy Scout troops have made cards and wrote letters of gratitude to soldiers. The Adopt-a-Soldier program 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.
