Marquette Bank Employees Feed Families in Need

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

From October through April of 2015, Marquette Bank employees are dedicating the third Wednesday of every month to feeding those in need by volunteering with South Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter), a program that provides shelter and support services to the homeless in Chicago’s south suburbs. Bank volunteers purchase, prepare and serve meals to more than 70 guests at Our Lady of the Ridge Catholic Church in Chicago Ridge as part of the monthly Cook Team made up of eight or more volunteers.

Marquette Bank also packs weekly lunches for South Suburban PADS through their Lunch Program. Each week a different Marquette Bank branch packs 75 sack lunches consisting of a sandwich, drink, fruit and snack and delivers them to South Suburban PADS. Some Marquette Bank employees purchase the food for the lunches and others spend time making the sandwiches and packing the lunches. Marquette Bank would like to encourage those who are able to help South Suburban PADS to donate online at or call 1-708-754-4357 to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
