Cystic Fibrosis receives donation from Standard Bank and Trust Co.
Standard Bank & Trust Co. raised $3,635.15 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in a recent pin-up program where its customers and employees made donations to the Foundation. Standard Bank employees also participated in the Foundation’s Great Strides Walks in Orland Park, Joliet and Naperville.
“This is truly a team effort and could not be a success without everyone’s motivation and commitment,” said Erica Oganovich, Branch Manager at Standard Bank. “We connected with neighbors who are affected by this disease at the Great Strides Walks. Those local heroes and their families were the true inspiration for us to help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.”
Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. Since 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been in pursuit of finding a cure. Nearly 90 cents of every dollar it receives goes to research, care and educational programs.
