BENEFITING: American Red Cross
EVENT DATE: Jun 07, 2013
In celebration of our Stanley Cup seeking Blackhawks, SBI will be wearing Blackhawks jerseys at the bank on 06/07/2013.
We, in previous events, have asked for a donation for those employees who chose to wear a jersey that day.
What if we expanded the donation requests to our local community??
What if we could all be involved as employees & people of our communities to help raise money for the people of major disasters similar to the Oklahoma tornadoes?
What if we had a sea of red with Blackhawks fans within our community?
If we ALL could reach out to our chamber members, customers, fellow business owners, family & friends, we could raise a substantial amount of money for those in need.
This would be a great way for us to get more involved within our respected communities as we all come together to help those affected by horrible life changing tragedies.
What a great way to be involved in the community by doing good onto others!
This would require very quick action by us all to reach out to people to donate to the American Red Cross.
Here is how the donations would work:
The bank would collect the donations made payable to State Bank of Illinois or American Red Cross up until 06/29/2013.
We then send the funds to the American Red Cross & they allocate the monetary donations to the Disaster Recovery Funds. The funds are disbursed according to the needs of the disaster. You may also donate online.
Let’s help those in need while we celebrate the quest for victory with the Chicago Blackhawks!!!
Be sure to get the word out about our donation drive ASAP!
