Legence Bank was a recipient of an additional $16,000 grant through a partnership with Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago for COVID-19 neighborhood relief.

With this funding, Legence awarded four grants to local organizations: The Women's Center, the SI Coalition for the Homeless, Men of Power -- Women of Strength, and Hope Unlimited.

"This donation comes at a critical time for the Women's Center. The support provided by Legence Bank will help in our mission to provide shelter, counseling and other advocacy services," said Gloria Tison, board member for The Women's Center.
