HUNTINGBURG -- Old National Bank is donating to a local charity.
The company presented a $10,000 check to Christian Ministries of Huntingburg at Shared Abundance Thursday afternoon.
The money will go to fund a renovation project at Shared Abundance. In the front, it's a thrift store. The money raised there goes to buy items for the food pantry in the back of the building.
This project consists of a renovation of work space to allow the organization to increase their ability to feed those with food insecurity.
"Old National Bank is focused on developing partnerships with organizations in our communities that are dedicated to leveraging funding opportunities that impact areas of greatest need. We are proud to partner with nonprofit organizations like Christian Ministries of Huntingburg, Inc. to strengthen our communities through initiatives with meaningful impact,” said Tom Krodel, Jasper Region President of Old National Bank.
“Through Old National’s charitable giving programs, the Foundation demonstrates its commitment to improve the quality of life in the communities where its clients, associates and shareholders live and work,” according to Janet Baas, Foundation President. “Due to the volume of applications received, each application is evaluated on a competitive basis as we strive to fund programs with strong impact and measurable outcomes. The Foundation’s primary focus areas are affordable housing, economic development, workforce development, financial literacy, and education programs. Priority consideration is also giving to initiatives that serve low-to-moderate income individuals and households,” said Baas.
