OLD NATIONAL FOUNDATION GIVES ICA FOOD SHELF $10,000
The nonprofit is being recognized for its affordable housing efforts.
MINNETONKA, MINN. – Aug. 8, 2019 – This week, the Old National Bank Foundation, philanthropic arm of Old National Bank, was proud to present a check for $10,000 to ICA Food Shelf, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing assistance to neighbors in need by providing food options, clothing donations and financial assistance.
Three times a year, the foundation presents grants to organizations throughout its footprint that fit the following strategic initiatives: affordable housing, early education, economic development, financial literacy and workforce development.
“We are so grateful for this generous contribution from Old National Bank Foundation,” said ICA Food Shelf Executive Director Peg Keenan. “These funds will be used to help ICA clients who need housing and utility support in order to stay in their homes. Some of our clients find unexpected costs like a car repair, medical expenses, or even having a job change can mean they need a little help one month and then their lives stabilize once again. Old National is making sure people in our community can stay in their homes and avoid the disruptive, life-altering effects of having to enter a shelter.”
ICA Food Shelf is being awarded this grant for its affordable housing efforts. The grant money will be used to support its Housing Stability Program. Through this program, ICA case managers work directly with clients to offer financial assistance to prevent homelessness.
“As a financial institution, we know first-hand how important financial education is,” said Old National Bank Foundation Board Member Kelly Elkin. “We’re thrilled to support ICA Food Shelf’s efforts to break the cycle of homelessness through financial empowerment for its clients.”
