Merrillville, Ind.-based NiSource Inc., parent company of Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO), today announced a $25,000 donation from the NiSource Charitable Foundation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund in support of its relief efforts in Japan.

The contribution continues NiSource’s long-standing partnership with the Red Cross and will help bolster the organization’s effort to support victims of the Japanese disaster, as well those affected by disasters in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world where need is greatest. The company is also encouraging individual donations from its employees.

In 2010, NiSource companies provided a record level of more than $6.8 million in charitable donations to local, regional and national organizations. This included a similar donation to the American Red Cross in support of its relief efforts in Haiti following its devastating earthquake.
