The Milwaukee nonprofit group, Next Door, was awarded a $25,000 grant from the U.S. Bank Foundation. A check presentation took place on Friday, Aug. 28, at the U.S. Bank Midtown office located at 5526 W. Capitol Drive.
The check presentation was attended by Carol Keintz, president of Next Door; Steven SaLoutos, U.S. Bank executive vice president, senior group head for metropolitan banking and emeritus member of Next Door’s Board of Directors; State Rep. Latonya Johnson; Alderman Joe Davis, Sr. and Zach TeWinkel, vice president and small business district manager for U.S. Bank and a member of Next Door’s Board of Directors.
“Next Door is proud to have U.S. Bank as a strong community partner. They are helping us change the face of Milwaukee and making it a better place for children and their families to live and grow,” said Keintz.
“Next Door is a valued organization in the Milwaukee community and is justly admired for its steadfast fight to help alleviate poverty and illiteracy, and to help foster education, engaged parenting and improved health and wellness,” said TeWinkel.
