Independent Bank sponsored the fifth annual Soup for Suits event to help benefit the Muskegon Rescue Mission. Since it began five years ago, Independent Bank has been the major sponsor of this lunch event.

Over 100 business people were treated to soups and bread served by Independent Bank volunteers at LC Walker Arena. Soups and pies were donated by the Grand Traverse Pie Company and coffee was donated by Starbucks. The goal was to raise funds for the Rescue Mission and heighten awareness of their work with those in need. The Muskegon Rescue Mission is in the process of expanding its building by increasing its bedding capacity by 30 percent.

“Independent Bank feels privileged to continue to be the premier sponsor for this event,” said José Infante, senior vice president of commercial lending. “The Muskegon Rescue Mission is a wonderful organization in our community and we are happy to support them.”
