Brightened Holiday for Local Families

Adopt-a-Family Marquette Bank Employees
Marquette Bank provided gifts for more than 150 children and adults as part of its tenth annual Adopt-a-Family Project. This employee-run project is an annual event where the Bank teams up with local organizations to distribute gifts to families in need.  To fulfill gifts for families Marquette Bank raised funds by participating in Bank-wide jeans days, where employees could make a $5 donation to wear jeans to work and also used donated toys from our annual Toy Drive. Once donations were collected, Bank employees came together and held a “wrapping party” where they spent a few hours after work wrapping gifts for the families. Toys from the Neighborhood Toy Drive were donated to the Action Coalition Englewood, Alicia’s House, Esmond Elementary School, Girls of Grace, Nativity BVM, Orland Township, Toy Box Connection, Sertoma Centre, St. Adrian Parish, St. Benedict Parish, St. Rita Parish, Trinity Lutheran Church & School and The Port Ministries.
