• Marquette Bank Employees Fight Hunger with St. Blasé Supper Kitchen 

    Neighborhood bank employees donate, prepare and serve dinner at St. Blasé in Summit 

     

    Orland Park, IL (May 23, 2014) – Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, volunteered with the St. Blasé Supper Kitchen in Summit to benefit families in need. On Wednesday, May 21, a team of 10 employees donated, prepared and served dinner for 100 guests at the Supper Kitchen.

    “We have been helping feed the hungry at St. Blasé for over four years and are proud to partner with such a humble organization,” Betty Kosky-Harn, Executive Vice President said. “As a neighborhood bank, we are dedicated to serving our community and helping people who are in desperate need of food and shelter.”

    In 2003, the Supper Kitchen, which is part of St. Blasé Parish, was founded by the Albertine Sisters in collaboration with Catholic Charities, who care for and help local residents who are struggling with hunger. Food is distributed each week and hot dinners are served at the Supper Kitchen every Wednesday.

    Marquette Bank’s volunteer effort at the St. Blasé Supper Kitchen 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.
