    Neighborhood bank participates in local event for children in need 


    Orland Park, IL (April 10, 2014) – Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, recently teamed up with Toy Box Connection to assist with its 4th annual Kids Day Out event with Mooseheart Child City & School. Activities included bowling, pizza and toy giveaways at the Centennial Bowl in Tinley Park. Marquette Bank’s mascot Marty the Moose greeted the children as they arrived and the bank was one of a dozen local businesses that contributed to the event for 170 children.

    “Marquette Bank and The Toy Box Connection have a very strong relationship and common goal of helping the less fortunate children in our areas,” Christie Cox, Director of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment said. “As a neighborhood bank, we feel it is important to help out local organizations, like Toy Box Connection, that contribute to the happiness of children and make their lives that much brighter.”

    Marquette Bank’s support of the Toy Box Connection 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. The bank also partners with Toy Box Connection during the holiday season to help distribute toys to children around the Chicagoland area, including projects at Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn and Clara’s House, a homeless shelter for families, in Chicago.
