Brookfield, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced that the November community give-back program “Bank on Kindness” raised a total of $9,690 to support Stars and Stripes Honor Flight located in Menomonee Falls and Old Glory Honor Flight located in Menasha. The public contributed $5,690, with an additional $4,000 being matched by North Shore Bank. Employees of the community bank have also been surprising and delighting local veterans, active-duty men and women and veteran support organizations with acts of kindness this month.

“We are so proud of and thankful to our community for helping support Stars and Stripes Honor Flight and Old Glory Honor Flight. We’re grateful for the opportunity to pay tribute to our local veterans in this way and are thrilled that 19 more veterans will receive the special Honor Flight experience, thanks to our community’s generosity,” said Susan T. Doyle, senior vice president of retail banking at North Shore Bank.

The Honor Flight organizations currently accept applications for WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and terminally ill veterans from other wars and are taking flight again. The funds received during this campaign will give veterans in northeast and southeast Wisconsin the opportunity to join upcoming Honor Flight Missions in 2022. The cost to sponsor one veteran’s flight is approximately $500 and therefore enough money was raised through North Shore Bank’s “Bank on Kindness” initiative to cover costs for 19 veterans.

The community had the opportunity to donate to the campaign from Nov. 1 – Nov. 14. Previous Bank on Kindness initiatives have raised funds for area food pantries as well as animal-related non-profits. Another give-back campaign cause will be announced in the spring of 2022.
