Illinois National Bank is sponsoring Touchdowns for the Table for the third year, a promotion tied in with local CS8 high school football games. For every point scored at the 20 football games broadcast on Sports Radio 1450 and 96.7 The Boss, INB will make a $1 donation to divide between three organizations which, in part, make sure everyone has food during the holiday season.
Touchdowns for the Table proceeds will support these charities:
Friend-in-Deed, providing food at Christmas for needy families in the Springfield area and also makes funds available year-round in the form of cash grants to families who need disaster relief.
Kids Café, a partnership between the Springfield Urban League and the Central Illinois Foodbank, feeds 75-100 children each day. The money raised through Touchdowns for the Table will be used by INB employees to provide each child with nutritious snacks over spring break.
St. Martin de Porres’ mission is to lovingly serve the needy with dignity. The agency provides food to over 140 families each day it is open.
“This has been a great way for us to show we support high school football,” said Pat Phalen, INB executive vice president. “Last year each charity received almost $624. We’re happy if the teams score even higher this year. Each touchdown for your favorite team means more money to help these organizations fulfill their missions.”
Illinois National Bank is based in Springfield and operates 12 branches in central Illinois. A locally-owned bank, INB provides a full range of traditional banking services to individuals and businesses, including commercial and retail banking, trust and brokerage, cash management, Internet banking and remittance processing.
