Muncie Habitat awarded grant from Old National Bank Foundation for house rehabilitation

Muncie, Indiana [November 26, 2013]– Muncie Habitat for Humanity has been awarded a grant of $5,000 from Old National Bank Foundation to help rehabilitate a home in Muncie for a family.  “With the large number of vacant homes in our community, rehabilitating homes is a wonderful  way for us to serve families with homeownership. We are serving low-income families with quality, affordable housing while improving existing housing in our neighborhoods.  We are honored to have the continued support and partnership of Old National Bank Foundation and their employees on this project,” said Lindsey Arthur, Muncie Habitat for Humanity’s Chief Executive Officer. This particular home is located at 3212 S. Cherokee and is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.

Upon completion of the rehabilitation work, Muncie Habitat will then sell this home with a no-interest, no profit loan to a low-income family.  “Old National Bank Foundation is proud to invest in an organization that clearly works to strengthen our community.  We look forward to partnering with Muncie Habitat to improve a house, a neighborhood, and ultimately the future for a family in this community,” said Jeff Howe, Old National Bank Region President.
