Interra Credit Union Leads Month Of Giving
August 12, 2020 – As part of Interra Credit Union’s Do Well To Do GoodTM campaign, the credit union recently led a month long giving initiative for area food pantries. In addition to highlighting 5 different food pantries each week on social media, Interra also provided a $1000 donation to the organizations totaling $5000 in contributions.
Interra’s Do Well To Do GoodTM initiative was created in early 2020 on the basis of further strengthening and uniting our communities through acts of good service. “When we all come together, and do good in our communities, great success will ensue,” Meegan Siegwarth, Vice President of Marketing at Interra Credit Union stated. “Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we knew this initiative would be vital for our staff, members and our communities as we tread through this difficult time together,” added Siegwarth.
Food pantry organizations were selected for this give-back outreach due to the ever-growing need in our communities. Several food pantries in Interra’s footprint are not able to take physical donations from the community due to COVID-19 concerns and restrictions. During the midst of the pandemic, these organizations have had to rely heavily on monetary donations from local businesses and community members in order to keep serving individuals in need. “Interra is honored to assist these food pantries at this time,” Andy Marshall, Chief Operating Officer at Interra Credit Union stated. “The leaders of these organizations are putting in long hours, sweat and tears, as they navigate through these ever-occurring changes,” Marshall said. “We appreciate and value all of their diligent efforts in taking care of the members of our communities.” added Marshall.
Interra highlighted the following organizations: Common Grace Ministries, Kendallville, Indiana; The Window, Goshen, Indiana; The Food & Clothes Basket of LaGrange County, LaGrange, Indiana; Syracuse Food Pantry, Syracuse, Indiana and Marshall County Neighborhood Center, Plymouth, Indiana.
