Thank you to the dedicated volunteers of the People’s Resource Center
Republic Bank of Chicago recently sponsored the People’s Resource Center Annual Volunteer Appreciation Event held in Lisle. With nearly two hundred attendees, the event celebrated the dedicated volunteers that help make the organization a success.
“People’s Resource Center served over 32,000 of our neighbors in 2015. The organization depends on their volunteers to deliver their services. We were privileged to participate in the event which honors their volunteers”, noted Whitney Cimaglia, Republic Bank VP/Branch Sales Manager.
Throughout the event puzzle piece imagery was used to illustrate the theme, “Volunteers: The Essential Piece”. The center serves over 9,000 DuPage families each year and depends on over 2,000 volunteers to support their initiatives like:
Food Pantry – Fresh produce, meat, dairy, and staples for families in need
Emergency Rent & Mortgage Assistance – Short-term help for people at risk of homelessness
Clothes Closet – Gently used clothing for all ages
Financial Assistance & Social Services – Assistance with emergency expenses
Job Assistance – Referrals and mentoring for job searches
Computers – Computer skills training plus free refurbished home computers and repair
Adult Learning and Literacy – Classes and tutoring to learn English, earn a GED, study for citizenship exams or improve math and reading skills.
Art Program – Art classes for all ages.
Republic Bank of Chicago was grateful to be a part of the celebration and greatly admires the dedicated volunteers. The bank’s sponsorship contributed to over 150 prizes that were given out at the event.
