Beginning today, Premier Bank will collect donations at each of their three branches in Dubuque. The bank will match the first $5,000 raised.
"On behalf of the entire Premier Bank family, our thoughts and well wishes for a strong recovery are with everyone impacted by Hurricane Harvey," said Premier Bank President and CEO Jeffrey Mozena. “We look forward to partnering with the American Red Cross to help show our community’s support. Any donation, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated."
Hurricane Harvey made landfall over the weekend. The category 4 hurricane crashed into the Texas coast, devastating families and businesses. Harvey is now a Tropical Storm and is lingering off the coast, dumping water onto coastal Texas, including the Houston area. As the rain continues, many people are in danger due to flooding while others have lost homes and property.
Premier Bank branches are located at 2625 NW Arterial Rd., 1975 JFK Rd., and at the corner of 9th and Iowa Streets. The bank will accept cash or check donations in any amount. Checks can be made to American Red Cross, with Hurricane Harvey in the memo.
Premier is a community bank committed to providing attractive account options with cutting-edge technology while supporting Dubuque’s civic, educational and charitable organizations. Premier Bank has $297 million in assets and three locations in Dubuque.
UPDATE: The $5,000 fundraising goal has been met. Premier Bank will match this effort, for a total of $10,000 being presented to the American Red Cross for Hurricane relief. Thank you to everyone that donated or helped in any way to help the affected people of these disasters.
