BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced that its Muskego branch (S74 W17095 Janesville Rd.) will host a donation drive to benefit the Schmitt family, who lost their home during a devastating fire on Feb. 14. The homeowner is a Greendale firefighter who was on duty at the time of the fire, and while the family is safe, their home received extensive damage.

To help raise funds for the family, the bank will offer free coin counting services at its Muskego branch. Participants can choose to donate all or a portion of the counted coins or make a separate monetary donation. The bank will match up to $500 of the donations received.

“Our hearts go out to the Schmitt family during this difficult time,” said Stephanie Ruiz, AVP and community engagement manager for the Muskego community. “We want to do our part to support them as they navigate the weeks ahead, and we welcome the community to join us in this effort.”
