Our First National Bank of Illinois – Lynwood location, believes in serving and supporting the community on a variety of levels. With this mission in mind, Joseph Levy, Assistant Vice President and Jessie Ford, Assistant Branch Manager, presented the Lynwood Little League with a check in the amount of $250.00 on Monday, April 7. The check was accepted by Doranita Tyler, Information Director, of Lynwood Little League.

The Lynwood Little League’s mission is to help children develop fundamental baseball and softball skills and teach them the importance of good sportsmanship through the values of courage and teamwork. All coaches, board members, and league administrators serve as parent volunteers.

“Baseball is a beloved spring and summer pastime for many children and we believe that all should have the opportunity to participate in the sport, regardless of their ability to pay,” said Joseph Levy, Assistant Vice President, First National Bank of Illinois. “We are honored to offer a sponsorship in the amount of $250.00 to the Lynwood Little League to provide children the opportunity to play baseball that would otherwise not be able to due to financial hardships.”
