As part of a company-wide initiative spanning all of their territory, NIPSCO has marked the completion of a very successful employee giving campaign, including a monetary donation to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. NIPSCO’s donation will provide up to 12,000 meals to Elkhart, Kosciusko, La Porte, Marshall, Starke, and St. Joseph County homes.
Money wasn’t the only thing collected during the campaign: employees also collected food items and Toys for Tots, totaling over $16,000 in total donations along with eight barrels of food items for local food banks and over 250 toys.
Mary Jo Martinec, the director of Food Bank of Northern Indiana, said that with the expected high demand for holiday assistance, the food bank is grateful for the support of NIPSCO employees.
On Thursday, Dec. 1, NIPSCO will be presenting a check to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana at their South Bend Operating Headquarters, located at 1039 E. Pennsylvania Avenue.
