Starke United announced this week of a $5,000 grant from NIPSCO to provide funds to cover 2012 campaign marketing expenses.

Starke United Board Vice President, Mike Charbonneau, who is also an employee of NIPSCO, said the giving need is greater this year, and urged individuals, businesses and industry to make a donation to the “Give a Little, Help a Lot” Starke United campaign.

Hall wanted to remind everyone that money raised in Starke County, stays in Starke County.
