(BEDFORD) – Hoosier Hills Credit Union recently donated $10,000 to the Lawrence County Community Foundation’s HHCU Community Fund.
HHCU and the Community Foundation established the permanent endowment fund to continuously support the changing needs of Lawrence County.
A portion of the funds annually goes into an open grant program to benefit impactful initiatives throughout the county.
HHCU President/CEO George McNichols presented the check to Hope Flores, the Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer.
The Foundation administers the allocation of charitable assets by identifying and responding to needs in Lawrence County, as well as through a partnership that serves neighboring Martin County’s needs.
The organization provides leadership and handles grant-making in areas related to education, economic development, health and human services, civic and historical affairs, arts and culture and recreational activities.
“The Lawrence County Community Foundation makes a difference in so many ways every single day, and its work is a wonderful avenue for community-focused organizations like Hoosier Hills Credit Union to support Lawrence County,” McNichols said.
