DONATION

  • National Bank of Commerce (NBC), through the partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, awarded $20,000 to the Head of the Lakes United Way.

“Local nonprofits like Head of the Lakes United Way are experiencing a number of challenges related to the pandemic,” said Matt Hunter, President of Head of the Lakes United Way. "There’s an increased need for our services. We're trying to maintain operations while staff works from home and due to COVID-19-related financial pressures on individuals and employers, we’re searching for creative ways to raise funds. That’s why this donation provided by National Bank of Commerce is so important. We're grateful for NBC's generosity in the face of this public health and economic emergency.”
