Horizon Bank Awards Donation to DeKalb Area Rural Transit


Dart_photoHorizon Bank announces donation to DeKalb Area Rural Transit in Auburn, Indiana. The donation, in the amount of $1,500, was presented by Larry Kummer, Market President of Northeast Indiana to Meg Zenk, DeKalb County Council on Aging Director on November 12th. Funds will be used to help build a garage for the DART vehicles.


“Horizon is very pleased to assist DART with the new garage construction project to house their vehicles.  DART provides our community with needed transportation for the elderly and youth that are not able to drive and also serves as a life line for several people needing medical and food resources,” stated Kummer.

“The much needed garage will possibly house up to 16 vehicles. DART is Public Transit so it serves all ages. The garage will also serve a dual purpose as it will be used as supplemental space for holding agency events for the community in general. We are truly grateful for the assistance of Horizon Bank and the scores of other entities including individuals whose donations have made this project possible,” stated Zenk.
