Money collected will assist earthquake victims in Haiti
BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced it is collecting financial donations on behalf of the Salvation Army’s Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund. Contributions, which will help the Salvation Army provide services to earthquake victims, can be made at any North Shore Bank office.
The Salvation Army has been serving in Haiti since the 1950s, and there is now an overwhelming need for food, water, and medical assistance. Funds collected at the bank offices will go to support these needs and the Salvation Army’s efforts to mobilize personnel and resources to Haiti.
“We wanted to do something to help our customers and neighbors make a positive difference during this difficult time for the people in Haiti,” said Steve Steiner, senior vice president for North Shore Bank. “The donations will certainly help those hit hardest by the recent earthquake, and we encourage people to give what they can to help the Salvation Army assist those who have been affected.”
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 created by the devastating magnitude 7.0 earthquake that shook Haiti on Jan. 12.
Each of the 44 North Shore Bank offices will collect relief funds beginning today and the effort will continue throughout the month of January. The bank will also match its employees’ contributions to the fund.
