The donation, in the amount of $6,000, was presented by Steve Bechman, Market President of Johnson County to the Director of the Interchurch Food Pantry, Carol Phipps on December 13, 2016.


“We were very pleased to donate to the food pantry especially this time of year when the need is greater. The number of people they serve continues to grow. This organization is operated totally by volunteers so it makes us feel good that the funds donated are used for the intended purpose,” stated Bechman.


“Thanks to the generosity of Horizon Bank, the Interchurch Food Pantry is able to serve hungry families in our community.  As we close 2016, we've served more households than ever before with the demand increasing 21% compared with the prior year.  The economy has improved but there are many families left behind that are struggling every day.  Horizon Bank has gone far through their generous donation to make a positive impact. Thank you so much!” stated Phipps.
