North Shore Bank’s “Bank on Kindness” Donation Program Raises Nearly $9k in Second Year of Supporting Food Pantries in Wisconsin

Brookfield, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced the bank’s February community give-back program “Bank on Kindness,” along with its annual Race for the Hungry, raised a total of nearly $9,000 to support local efforts of Wisconsin non-profit hunger relief organizations. From Feb. 7 to Feb. 20, 2022 the public donated to the local pantries of their choice through the Bank on Kindness community-focused website created by North Shore Bank.

In addition to matching $500 of donated funds for each of the participating food pantries, the community bank participated in a number of volunteer activities helping sort through donated food items at pantries. During this time the bank also held its annual Race for the Hungry in three markets and covered the cost of grocery items collected in the race and donated to these food pantries.

The following food pantries across Wisconsin shared in contributions through North Shore Bank’s February Bank on Kindness program:
“We are so thankful to our community members for their generosity in supporting these local food pantries. We are thrilled that together we were once again able to raise incredible funds in such a short amount of time,” said Susan T. Doyle, senior vice president of retail banking at North Shore Bank. “We look forward to announcing other Bank on Kindness non-profit partners later this year so we can continue to assist those in our communities who need support.”

North Shore Bank will choose different causes and related non-profits to feature for donations throughout the year. Future Bank on Kindness campaign will be announced at a later date.
