In celebration of 95 years serving the Greater Milwaukee community, WaterStone Bank is giving away a total of $95,000 to local nonprofit organizations through a video contest. Starting April 11, registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties were invited to submit a one-minute video that tells the story of how their organization is making a difference in the community the way WaterStone has made a difference over 95 years. When the entry period closed May 17, ten finalists were selected by the WaterStone Bank Foundation committee, including the video submitted by HAWS. HAWS was the only animal charity chosen for the final voting.
