At Popular Community Bank, we are focused on serving our local areas. There are a number of great causes we support, and even more that our customers are involved with throughout the year.
We are currently hosting our Make A Difference Day Challenge on our Facebook page. You can nominate your favorite charity on our Facebook wall between now and Friday, Oct. 19, and they might win a $1,000 donation from us! Click here for more details.
With that in mind, here are a few other areas where we’re working to improve our local communities.
Last week, we were privileged to help the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce – Metro Orlando support the Muscular Dystrophy Association in their 2012 MDA Lock-Up. The Lock-Up features business and community leaders agreeing to be “put behind bars for good.” Once “locked-up,” these leaders rely on co-workers, family and friends to get donations that will go toward their “bail.”
Last weekend, Popular Community Bank was honored to sponsor Recruitment Day at the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, CA. To read more about this great event and school, check out their blog.
A group of Popular Community Bank employees continues raising money for the Light the Night Walk to benefit Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in southern California. We featured this event last month, but the end of their fundraising campaign is coming up soon. So far, our team has raised over $14,000 for LLS! If you are interested in helping them reach their goal of $25,000 by next weekend, click here.
Next Thursday, Sept. 27, we are excited to be a sponsor of the Fajitas, Greens & All In Betweens Comedy Jam that benefits the Block Club Federation in Chicago. The 21-and-over event is at Joe’s Bar on Weed Street and features a fantastic lineup of comedians; the $20 donation includes pizza and $1 drinks from 6-7 PM.
