Security Financial Bank to donate up to $12,000 in winter clothing drive

Durand, Wis.-based Security Financial Bank is pledging to donate up to $12,000  through the “Share the Warmth” winter clothing drive for local underserved residents.

The drive will take place from Nov. 22 to Dec. 20 in six FSB Wisconsin locations. The public is encouraged to drop off scarves, coats, mittens and hats at any of the following locations:  

  • 8 Main St., Black River Falls, for the Boys & Girls Club of Jackson County. 
  • 1401 Main St., Bloomer, for the Chippewa County Department of Human Services Foster Care Program. 
  • 212 W. Prospect St., Durand, for an undecided program. 
  • Eau Claire, 4217 Southtowne Drive, Eau Claire, for the Boys & Girls Club of the Greater Chippewa Valley. 
  • 200 Miner Ave. W, Ladysmith, for the Rusk County Health & Human Services. 
  • 1561 Commerce Court, River Falls, for the Basics for Local Kids.  

SFB will donate $5 to a local nonprofit — up to $2,000 in each of the six communities with a bank office — for every new winter clothing item. 

“Not every person has access to cold weather gear,” said SFB President and CEO Paul Rudersdorf. “As the winter weather approaches, we wanted to do everything we could to help those in our community stay warm this winter season.”
