Level One Bank Raises $3,100 for the Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan at Bloomfield Township Grand Opening
FARMINGTON HILLS, MICH.: Level One Bank, at its customer and community grand opening event, introduced its newest Bloomfield Township banking center and raised $3,100 for the Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan.
The branch, located at 37100 Woodward Avenue, hosted more than 100 customers, community members and Level One Bank employees. The dynamic event included a money machine in which all dollars collected were donated directly to the Down Syndrome Guild. Level One donated $2,500 to the Down Syndrome Guild and helped raise another $600 through the money machine challenge which additionally offered fun entertainment. David Walker, CFO and Treasurer, kicked off the challenge, earning a modest donation. Patrick J. Fehring, President and CEO, continued the fun spirit of giving by taking his turn in the machine.
“We’re just as invested in our role as a member of the community as we are in our position as a business leader,” said Fehring. “Nothing is more rewarding than the ability to give back to those in need, even if it includes rolling up your sleeves to grab money out of thin air.”
The Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan is a group of dedicated individuals who donate their time and resources to assist people with Down syndrome. The organization is completely dependent on donations and fundraising to support the programs and services offered.
“The generous donations and support from businesses like Level One Bank are what fuels our organization to keep growing, and continue making a positive impact on the lives of those with Down syndrome, their families and caregivers,” said Paulette Duggins, Executive Director, Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan.
