Bank hosting free coin counting with proceeds going to Grace Welcome Center; North Shore Bank matching up to $500
Brookfield, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced the bank is holding a free community coin counting fundraiser to help with needed repairs for Grace Welcome Center’s vehicle used to collect food throughout the community.

Beginning Feb. 1 through Feb. 29, the public can stop by any North Shore Bank branch in Kenosha to count coins for free and donate all of or a portion of the coins to the fundraising effort to support Grace Welcome Center. North Shore Bank is starting the fundraiser by matching all donations up to $500.

“As a community bank our partners and neighbors have been at the forefront of our business for over 100 years. When our team heard about the repairs needed so that Grace Welcome Center could best provide crucial services to our community, we knew there was something that we could do to help,” said Brian Bozek, VP and district manager for the bank. “We encourage everyone to stop by one of our three Kenosha branches to count coins and donate.”

This week, North Shore Bank partnered with Grace Welcome Center on the bank’s fifteenth annual Race for the Hungry, where teams raced throughout Festival Foods on 80th Street in Kenosha to collect items to be donated to Grace Welcome Center. North Shore Bank associates learned of the repairs needed to the food collection vehicle during Race for the Hungry and responded quickly to offer the free community coin counting to encourage the community to help donate and raise funds.
