GARY — American Community Bank of Indiana recently donated $1,000 to the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana.

In a continuing effort to return some of the generosity that the community has shared with the bank for over a century, the bank’s employees chose the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana as the recipient of a $1,000 donation when the bank’s Facebook page reached its target goal for Page Likes.

“When we decided to designate a local aid organization as the beneficiary of our promotion, we put it up for a vote with the bank’s employees, and they chose the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana, said Bank President Michael Mellon. "It’s a terrific organization that helps many throughout the area, and that was the idea. We wanted to return the community’s generosity with a donation that benefits our local communities. We are proud to help how and when we can.”

American Community Bank of Indiana operates four full-service branches in Munster, Hammond, Dyer and Schererville.
