Horizon Bank is pleased to announce that they are donating a total of $60,000 to the local food pantries in the communities that they serve. Horizon Bank's "Feeding the Communities" Facebook campaign was a success by increasing the awareness to help those less fortunate in our community.


The campaign encouraged the community to 'Like' our Facebook page as well as 'Share' the updates that were posted throughout the month of November. The engagement of the Facebook community reached over 308,000 Facebook fans with this message. There were over 3,400 people talking about this campaign and sharing it with their friends.


"With the Holidays fast approaching, this is the time of the year where our food banks need our help the most. This Facebook campaign was a wonderful way to let the communities know about the great need at our local food pantries. We are very pleased to be able to help out these food banks that make a tremendous difference in so many lives." stated Craig Dwight, Chairman and CEO of Horizon Bank.
