    Orland Park, IL (Feb. 10, 2014) –– Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, recently gave back to those in need through its Neighborhood Warm and Fuzzy Drive, an employee-driven effort to help local organizations benefitting the less fortunate. Throughout January and February, almost 300 items were donated, including coats, gloves, hats, slippers, scarves, blankets, socks, robes and snow pants.

    “This winter’s record of below zero temperatures has proven how bitterly cold the Chicagoland area can get and. by providing warm clothing and accessories, we hope to make the winter season much more tolerable for the less fortunate and homeless,” Betty Kosky-Harn, Executive Vice President, said. “We would like to thank all of our employees who donated warm and fuzzy items for this great cause.”

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

    • PADS (Chicago Ridge)
    • St. Benedicts (Blue Island)
    • Englewood Cares International Outreach Ministries (Chicago)
    • Imagine Englewood IF (Chicago)
    • Metropolitan Family Services
    • Latino Organization of the Southwest

     

    The Neighborhood Warm and Fuzzy 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.
