Michigan City, IN — Horizon donated $5,000 to help aid in relief efforts caused by the recent tornados that caused widespread damage to the residents and business owners within the Whiteland and Greater Johnson County communities.
The donation will help support the immediate needs of the affected residents who are suffering losses after the storms. The United Way is also partnering with many local officials, agencies and churches to insure that those families in need are assisted with relief and recovery during this stressful time.
“We knew it was imperative to donate to the United Way of Johnson County Tornado Relief Fund to assist them to provide much needed help to the impacted areas," said Dan Hampton, Regional President of Central Indiana. “We encourage others to consider donating as well to help assist with ongoing recovery efforts."
