Associated Bank branches across the footprint are donating to their local American Legion Post to show support for veterans.
The effort dates back to November where Associated Bank branches displayed photos and military mementos in their lobbies to honor our country’s veterans and active-duty military personnel around Veteran’s Day. Items were borrowed from the American Legion Post as well as community members wanting to contribute to the displays.
The branches with the top displays received $1,000 to donate to their local American Legion Post:
Green Bay Associated Center
Check presentations are taking place with corresponding American Legion Post chapters in January and February.
“This event affords us the opportunity to give back and thank those who have or are currently serving our country,” said Todd Luft, consumer banking administration manger.
The American Legion is the nation’s largest wartime veteran’s service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism.
This was the fifth year Associated Bank held this event. Associated Bank is committed to supporting veterans and military personnel within our business as well as our communities. View more about our veteran and military benefits at http://careers.associatedbank.com/veteransandinstructions.aspx.
