Associated Bank recently contributed $2,000 to the Special Recreation Association of Central Lake County (SRACLC) Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides year-round community based recreation services to individuals with disabilities and their families.
“The Special Recreation Association of Central Lake County Foundation Board is extremely thankful for the donation from Associated Bank,” said Carolyn Chambers, Foundation Trustee for Special Recreation Association of Central Lake County. “The funds will be used to support the foundations mission of helping serve individuals with special needs and disabilities. Additionally, funding will go towards helping SRACLC's local Special Olympics year-round training programs, financial aid for youth and teens to attend SRACLC's Summer Day Camp and purchasing a new 15 passenger wheel chair accessible bus.”
Associated provides financial support through charitable donations to non-profit organizations throughout its footprint which help create and sustain healthy communities. Associated prioritizes charitable giving with a strategic focus on economic development, health and human services, education, environment and arts & culture.
