Centra Credit Union is donating $2,500 to the Washington County Food Bank. This donation is one of 41 grants of $2,500 each to non-profits within the communities Centra serves, totaling more than $100,000 in donations throughout Central and Southern Indiana.
Centra Team Members were asked to nominate the non-profits they feel passionate about supporting, and one non-profit was selected for each branch and department within Centra.
The Team from the Salem branch nominated the Washington County Food Bank.
“Centra Team Members love being able to support the causes they care about through this program, and we are proud to be able to support the communities we serve with these donations,” said Centra Community Involvement Officer Jenni Carr. “We chose to support many local non-profits, along with a few national organizations like the American Red Cross and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.”
The Washington County Food Bank distributes food donations to Washington County residents in need.
“This non-profit works to make our community better and improve the lives of people here at home. It is an honor to be able to support their mission,” Chris Bottorff, Centra Southern Region President and Chief Sales Officer, said.
Selected organizations are currently being notified of the donations with the funds being delivered to the selected non-profits by the end of November.
“These wonderful organizations support a similar mission and serve the local communities where Centra has a presence. Credit Unions were built on the premise of People Helping People, and we are excited to provide support to these causes,” Centra President and CEO Rick Silvers said.
