Oak Lawn Standard Bank and Trust donates to Park Lawn

Two Oak Lawn Standard Bank and Trust branches collected and donated $1,100 during the first “Holiday Hope for Park Lawn” to benefit the residential facilities of Park Lawn.

The collection was held from November 26th to December 18th at two Oak Lawn Standard Banks addressed 4001 W. 95th Street and 4700 W. 111th Street.

Both locations sold decorative ornaments in increments of $1, $5 and $10. Each Standard Bank customer that bought a supporting ornament personally placed it on the Standard Bank holiday tree.

Donations will help purchase much needed items for Park Lawn’s residential facilities. Currently Park Lawn has a total 9 residential facilities and anticipates growth. Items will include everything from pots and pans to outside plants that make it feel more like a home.

Standard Bank Branch Manager Victoria Scanlon mentioned while touring Park Lawn’s day program facility in Oak Lawn that they anticipate continuing the “Holiday Hope for Park Lawn” collection drive in future years.
