Orland Park, IL (Dec. 15, 2016)––Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, recently held its annual Winter Wear Drive, an employee-driven effort to donate winter apparel to local nonprofit organizations such as the Metropolitan Family Services. Over 70 items including blankets, scarves, gloves, hats, coats, boots and snow pants were collected through November and donated to neighborhood nonprofits. 
“We are so happy to partner with these organizations in order to ensure people in need get items they need to ensure they keep warm throughout the winter month,” said Marquette Bank Director of Neighborhood Initiative, Christie Cox. “We are thankful to our generous employees who donated items towards this drive.”
Local organizations that benefitted from Marquette Bank’s Winter Wear Drive included:

  • Englewood Cares International Outreach Ministries (Chicago)
  • Feed, Clothe and Help the Needy (Chicago)
  • Metropolitan Family Services (Chicago)
The Neighborhood Winter Wear Drive is part of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment. Each quarter the bank focuses on a different area of need – shelter, hunger, education and health/wellness. For more information about Marquette Bank and its Neighborhood Commitment call 1-888-254-9500 or visit
