Horizon Bank of Michigan City has bolstered the Franciscan Health Foundation’s efforts to fight the coronavirus in Northwest Indiana with its latest donation. The bank has pledged $12,500 to the new Franciscan Preparedness & Response Fund. The donation will be a match to local gifts provided to the fund, which helps address the urgent need for supplies and equipment in healthcare facilities. The $12,500 is in addition to $250,000 pledged by Horizon Bank for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds are being allocated across several not-for-profit groups working to assist communities Horizon serves in Indiana and Michigan. The public can provide the match to Horizon Bank’s donation by giving to the Preparedness & Response Fund at FranciscanHealthFoundation.org/COVID-19.
