Community Center Partners with Pullman Bank & Trust
The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center recently partnered with Pullman Bank & Trust to help improve the lives of various children, teens, adults, and seniors residing throughout the Chicago- land area. Pullman Bank & Trust is located at 861 W. 115th Street and serves as a true community bank, dedicated to meeting the needs of all consumers.
“The South Side of Chicago has been a financial desert,” said Major David Harvey, Ray & Joan Kroc Center Senior Administrator. “We are thankful to Pullman Bank for investing in an institution in our neighborhood and also investing in the Kroc Center. With these funds of $10,000, our members of all ages will be able to access accounts and get financial education,” Harvey added.
The partnership with Pullman Bank & Trust will provide valuable financial resources for the communities we serve in the form of educational seminars or events. Additionally, differences will be made in economically disadvantaged communities which lack resources, prevent violence, provide a safe haven for children, and present positive alternatives to gangs or drugs.
“We are delighted to partner with a local organization that truly cares about improving the lives of others and provides constructive activities which highlight our bank initiatives,” said Bill Cord- es, President of Pullman Bank & Trust. “The alliance will continue to help Pullman Bank & Trust maintain and strengthen community impact for future philanthropic endeavors.”
