Curative Connections, an area nonprofit that provides services for older adults, those with disabilities and brain injuries, received a $1,500 donation from the Bank of Luxemburg. The donation will go to Curative’s Luxemburg location, Journeys Club.

Money was raised by the Bank of Luxemburg’s staff who donated to employee jean day, which allows employees to wear jeans to work on Fridays. Money raised throughout the quarter supports local nonprofit organizations selected by a committee of bank employees.

“I heard about Journeys Club and the work they do with seniors through my church,” said Bonni Gauger, mortgage loan assistant with the Bank of Luxemburg. “I thought about how difficult being the primary caregiver for an aging parent can be at times, and how Journeys Club can help lift some of that burden with the services they provide. It seemed like the perfect place to help out.”

The donation to the Journeys Club will support on-going programs that help older adults with disabilities or memory impairments, providing group activities and support services.

“We are thrilled to have been selected as a recipient by the Bank of Luxemburg,” said Steve McCarthy, president of Curative Connections. “We live and work in a very giving community and this donation will allow us to continue providing quality services to families and their loved ones.”

Since starting the employee jean program in 2016, the Bank of Luxemburg has been able to give back to 10 area nonprofit organizations.

Curative Connections was established in Green Bay in 1948 to help people affected by polio. Over the years, Curative has helped tens of thousands of people with a wide variety of illnesses, disabilities, and other needs. In Green Bay, Curative has two locations: its primary service site at 2900 Curry Lane, and its west side location at 1538 Western Ave., which offers adult day services.
