Horizon Bank Red Kettle Day
The Salvation Army is excited to announce that select Horizon Bank locations in five Indiana counties will host special Red Kettles in their lobbies as part of a $5,000 match challenge on Friday, December 15. For one day only Horizon Bank customers and visitors will have a chance to double the impact of their donations to their local Salvation Army.
"We can’t reach our goals without partners and collaborators like Horizon Bank," said Major Rachel Stouder, Area Commander for The Salvation Army of Central Indiana. "Their initiative and creativity to welcome us in their doors this way is an exciting opportunity, and we look forward to celebrating the success!
Horizon Bank, which has over 70 locations across Indiana and Michigan, has offered the match to encourage their customers to support the important efforts of The Salvation Army as they help their neighbors in need. 2023 has been a challenging year for many Hoosier households, making the match especially appreciated in each service area.
"The Salvation army continues to do an amazing job addressing the needs and serving our local communities," said Josh Shelley, VP and District Manager with Horizon Bank. "We are excited to support the kettle drive again this year and encourage others to donate if they can"
