Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive

North Shore Bank is offering free coin counting to the public Thursday, Sept. 7, through Saturday, Sept. 9, as part of a community fundraiser to help victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas. Anyone can bring in loose change to be counted and donate it or receive dollars in return.

Additionally, the bank will tally the amount counted over the three-day effort and match it in the form of a donation (up to $1,000 across all bank branches) to the Houston Relief Fund established by Pewaukee native and NFL player J.J. Watt.

“The images and stories coming out of Texas are heartbreaking, but we are also so inspired by how people across the country have mobilized to help. As a community bank, we want to do our part,” said Craig Witz, vice president of Branch Administration at North Shore Bank. “Coin counting is just one of the many conveniences our bank offers in all of its branches, and we thought this would be a great opportunity for people to exchange their loose change for dollars and also contribute to an important and worthy cause. We encourage everyone to stop by their neighborhood North Shore Bank from Thursday through Saturday – let’s come together to help our fellow citizens in Texas.”

Watt, a football standout at Pewaukee High School and the University of Wisconsin who currently plays for the Houston Texans, has established an online fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey relief through his charitable foundation. As of Sept. 1, the effort had raised more than $14 million.

Besides the bank’s contribution, anyone interested in donating all or some of the change they bring to the bank to Watt’s Houston Relief Fund can do so at any branch location through Sept. 9.
