Local nonprofits receive funding from bank

Two local nonprofit organizations have received funding from Old National Bank.

Community Provisions of Jackson County Inc. and Anchor House Family Assistance Center and Pantry, both in Seymour, each received $2,500.

Old National Bank joined #GivingTuesdayNow in a global day of giving and unity and responding to meet the needs of communities by committing $1.2 million for COVID-19 relief.

This included $600,000 in funding focused on meeting the immediate needs in local communities with an emphasis on low- to moderate-income communities and $600,000 in Old National Bank Foundation grant funding that will focus on longer-term restorative and transformational needs within local communities.

“Old National has a long history of community commitment, and we are pleased to support our communities in this urgent time of need,” said Scott Poling, market president. “These organizations are providing such valuable services in our communities, and we are pleased to partner with them and assist those who need it most.”

Old National Bancorp, the holding company of Old National Bank, is the largest bank holding company headquartered in Indiana.
