Annual employee-driven Charity of Choice campaign benefits area organizations

Sixteen local organizations received donations from NIPSCO’s annual Charity of Choice program to help assist the organizations with their COVID-19 relief efforts within communities across northern Indiana. In total, NIPSCO employees helped raise $75,000 in the recent drive.

Under normal circumstances, NIPSCO hosts numerous in-person fundraising events throughout the summer to help drive donations. This year’s fundraising efforts were done virtually with employees able
to raise the much needed funding.

“Due to these unprecedented times, we felt the best way to provide support was through the selection of a variety of organizations who’ve been on the frontlines assisting local residents with food instability, housing insecurity and child care offerings,” said Mike Hooper, President of NIPSCO. “We’re proud that our employees came together virtually to help contribute to these organizations providing critical services to those in need as part of NIPSCO’s annual Charity of Choice campaign.”
This year’s beneficiary organizations include:
 Boys & Girls Clubs of Adams County
 Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County
 Boys & Girls Clubs of LaPorte County
 Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana
