Forward Bank Celebrates Power of Community Week
April 20, 2020
Banks devote time, effort, and resources daily in support of their communities. During the week of April 19-25, 2020,banks from across the Badger State will be participating in the Wisconsin Bankers Association (WBA) Power of Community campaign to highlight the role banks play in the communities they serve.
This year Forward Bank is using Power of Community Week as an opportunity to deliver baskets full of healthy snacks to healthcare workers. Forward gives thanks for their help in "Moving our communities Forward to better health." Forward is also hosting a Stronger Together Photo Challenge on Facebook to raise funds for the Marshfield Area COVID-19 Relief Fund.
"During this time, we have seen where communities need our help more than ever. This is a great opportunity to reach out, give appreciation and provide guidance," said Bill Sennholz, CEO. "It's exciting to be coordinating our usual service efforts with other Wisconsin banks during the Power of Community week to really showcase how banks help their communities."
Launched by the Wisconsin Bankers Association, the Power of Community campaign is a way that banks can celebrate the communities they serve, whether it's volunteering at a local non-profit, fundraising for a charitable organization, using a bank office to collect items to be shared with a local group, or participating in National Teach Children to Save Day.
The Wisconsin Bankers Association is the state's largest financial industry trade association, representing nearly 250 commercial banks and savings institutions, their nearly 2,300 branch offices and 23,000 employees.
