MICHIGAN CITY — Horizon Bank announced that it is pledging $250,000 in aid for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Funds will be allocated across several not-for-profit groups who are working to assist affected individuals in the communities we serve in the States of Indiana and Michigan, said a news release from Horizon Bank.
“This is an unprecedented time, and as such it’s critical for those that have the resources to do what we can to assist those who are feeling the most immediate impacts of the coronavirus outbreak,” said Craig Dwight, Chairman and CEO of Horizon Bank. “We want to support organizations that are already positioned, equipped and well managed to efficiently deliver the aid to those most in need,” said Dwight.
Therefore, Dwight said, “Horizon Bank is joining forces with multiple agencies to maximize the services they provide. We also encourage other companies and individuals to support their communities whenever and wherever possible,” he said.
Horizon Bank’s donations support local area United Way locations, food banks and those that provide rental assistance, said the news release.
