NIPSCO employees recently held a food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.
In addition to the many pounds of food collected, the employees will be presenting a grant to the Food Bank worth $7,500 which will help provide 60,000 meals to area families.
The collection is part of a larger, company-wide Pass the Hat initiative that spans all of NIPSCO’s Northern Indiana service territory.
The presentation will be made this afternoon at 2 p.m. ET at the Food Bank of Northern Indiana in South Bend. The Food Bank of Northern Indiana works in partnership with several communities to feed the hungry, increase awareness of the effects of hunger and lead programs designed to alleviate hunger.
The Food Bank serves Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaPorte, Marshall, Starke and St. Joseph Counties.
