North Shore Bank Pewaukee Parking Lot Initiative Raises Funds for Friends of the Parks of Pewaukee’s Fourth of July Fireworks

Branch parking lot continues to help address public parking needs downtown while investing back in community
BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank announced today a donation of over $2,000 to the Friends of the Parks of Pewaukee to support the Fourth of July fireworks. This donation comes from the proceeds of the community bank’s give-back metered parking system that was installed in 2022 at the North Shore Bank Pewaukee branch, located at 120 W. Wisconsin Ave.

The North Shore Bank Pewaukee parking lot transitioned from a privately-owned parking lot to the community-give-back parking system, with the goal of drawing visitors to downtown Pewaukee with accessible parking, while returning proceeds right back to the local community. The Friends of the Parks of Pewaukee was selected randomly by the bank to receive the funds. Last year, the Kiwanis Club of Pewaukee received the funds from the initiative. 

“When we transitioned our parking lot to this model, our goal was to create a win-win-win opportunity for our Pewaukee community, which we’ve been lucky enough to serve for over 25 years,” said Cristen Bauman, vice president and district manager at North Shore Bank. “We’re excited to be supporting the Friends of the Parks of Pewaukee with the Fourth of July fireworks right around the corner.”

The initiative aims to support local tourism activity, businesses, and residents with all parking proceeds reinvested in the Pewaukee area community through North Shore Bank’s Bank on Kindness® initiative. North Shore Bank customers always have free parking at the lot both during and after business hours.
