Associated Bank has contributed $10,000 to La Causa Inc., a Milwaukee nonprofit that provides child care on the largely Hispanic south side.
The donation will go to support operational costs for La Causa’s Crisis Nursery & Respite Capital campaign. The organization is building a new facility to provide 24-hour shelter and care for children during difficult times.
“The services we provide through our Crisis Nursery & Respite Center gives parents a “safety valve” for help at those times when the stresses of finances, health, and /or other life challenges are too much to handle,” said George Torres, president & CEO of La Causa. “Taking these children and providing a safe and loving place to stay keeps them out of harm’s way and also allows for parents to catch their breath and refocus before the children become their venting source.”
Associated Bank donates to nonprofit organizations throughout the communities it serves, focusing on economic development, health and human services, education, environment and arts and culture.
“At Associated we believe our communities are better places to live and work as a result of the combined efforts of individuals and businesses working together to reach their full potential,” said Andrew Ruehl, vice president, corporate social responsibility manager. “We strive to meet our community’s local needs by becoming involved with great organizations such as La Causa, and lend a helpful hand to address the challenges our communities face.”
