Money collected will assist victims of Hurricane Katrina
BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced it is collecting financial donations on behalf of the Salvation Army’s Hurricane Relief Fund. Contributions, which will help the Salvation Army provide services to Hurricane Katrina victims and first responders in Louisiana and Mississippi, can be made at any North Shore Bank office.
“We wanted to do something to help our customers and neighbors make a positive difference during this difficult time for our country,” said James F. McKenna, president of North Shore Bank. “The donations will certainly help those hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina. A $100 donation to the Salvation Army will feed a family of four for two days, provide two cases of drinking water and one household clean-up kit. While a $100 donation isn’t possible for everyone, we encourage people to give what they can to help those who have been affected by this devastating storm.”
The Salvation Army is asking only for financial donations at this time, as it assesses what materials it may need for the clean-up effort.
Each of the 40 North Shore Bank offices will collect relief funds beginning today and the effort will continue throughout the month. The bank will also match its employees’ contributions to the fund.
North Shore Bank, headquartered in Brookfield, was founded in 1923. It has assets of $1.8 billion and 40 offices throughout eastern Wisconsin. Current branch locations are in metro Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Appleton, Menasha, the Green Bay area, Burlington, Union Grove, Algoma, Two Rivers and Door County, and the bank will open a new office in Franklin this fall. North Shore Bank also has Mortgage Loan Center offices in Madison and Tampa, Fla.
