Employees Raise Money by Wearing Jeans in Support of Misericordia

Chicago-based Signature Bank, a commercial bank serving privately-held and middle-market businesses, served as a donation counting site for the Misericordia Heart of Mercy non-profit during their annual Candy Days fundraiser on April 28th and 29th for the eleventh year in a row. The annual event raises money for the Misericordia Heart of Mercy Home, a residential facility for more than 600 developmentally and physically disabled children and adults. Signature Bank employees raised money for the cause and showed their support by wearing jeans to work.

“Misericordia is such an important institution in Chicago and Signature Bank is very proud to offer our services to Sister Rosemary and all of the hard-working Misericordia staff and volunteers,” said Signature Bank CEO Mick O’Rourke. “Candy Days provide a great opportunity to see Chicago’s true community and volunteer spirit in action and we look forward to helping again next year.”

More than 10,000 volunteers blanket the streets of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs during Candy Days, collecting donations in exchange for Jelly Belly candy packets with information about Misericordia. The money raised during Candy Days goes to support Misericordia’s various services, including residential placement, educational opportunities, and health and wellness activities.

“Signature Bank has been a great friend to Misericordia during Candy Days and beyond,” said Misericordia Chief Financial Officer Kevin Connelly. “Their support for Chicago charities like Misericordia shows how deeply invested they are in this great city.”

Signature Bank is a full-service commercial bank focused exclusively on serving the needs of privately owned businesses and their owners.
