Illinois State Bank to Offer Public Free Coin Counting Sept. 7-9 as Part of Community Fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey Victims

Bank to donate equivalent of amount counted over three-day effort to NFL player J.J. Watt’s Houston Relief Fund

BROOKFIELD, Wis. – Illinois State Bank today announced that its branches will offer free coin counting to the public Thursday, Sept. 7, through Saturday, Sept. 9, as part of a community fundraiser to help victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas. Anyone can bring in loose change for accurate, machine counting and receive dollars in return. Additionally, the bank will tally the amount counted over the three-day effort and match it in the form of a donation (up to $1,000 across all branches) to the Houston Relief Fund established NFL player J.J. Watt.

“The images and stories coming out of Texas are heartbreaking, but we are also so inspired by how people across the country have mobilized to help. As a community bank, we want to do our part,” said Craig Witz, vice president of Branch Administration for the bank. “Coin counting is just one of the many conveniences our bank offers in all branches, and we thought this would be a great opportunity for people to exchange their loose change for dollars and also contribute to an important and worthy cause. We encourage everyone to stop by Illinois State Bank from Thursday through Saturday – let’s come together to help our fellow citizens in Texas.”

Watt, who currently plays for the Houston Texans, has established an online fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey relief through his charitable foundation. Beyond the bank’s matching contribution, anyone interested in donating all or some of the change they bring to the bank to Watt’s Houston Relief Fund can do so, as well, Witz said.

Coins will be accepted for counting during regular hours at the bank’s McHenry and Lake in the Hills branches. Exact locations and hours are available at www.illinoisstatebank.com.
