Forward Bank Participates in Wisconsin Power of Community Week April 13, 2018
Banks devote time, effort, and resources daily in support of their communities. During the week of April 16-20, 2018, 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.
Forward Bank is involved in community service projects year-round, but participation in this week-long campaign will bring together the efforts of the entire Wisconsin banking industry to show our collective impact and involvement in the state.
“We are proud of our community and our role in helping families grow and businesses prosper. While we strive every day to serve our customers, it is especially rewarding when we volunteer directly in the community,” said Bill Sennholz, President/CEO at Forward Bank.
“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,” explained Sennholz.
Launched by the Wisconsin Bankers Association, the Power of Community campaign is a way for banks to 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 (Friday, April 20).
Forward will be working with veteran’s groups in all markets, except Marshfield, to coordinate gathering tattered flags for respectful destruction and the sale of new flags. In Marshfield, we will be making a donation to a veterans group after Grand Opening festivities wrap up.
Bankers will be using #BanksPowerWI on social media channels during their events across Wisconsin.
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.
