German American Insurance recently presented a $1,674.00 check to Memorial Hospital Foundation’s HOPE Garden. The money was raised at German American Insurance’s 5th Annual Golf Outing held in September, at which time the golf participants were invited to make a donation and German American Insurance donated matching funds. The funds will help forward the mission of Memorial Hospital Foundation’s HOPE Garden to help reduce hunger and provide healthy food to families, schools, and programs in need within Daviess, Dubois, Martin, Pike and Spencer Counties.
“With the generous giving of our customers and insurance partners united with German American’s giving culture, we are honored to present this $1,674.00 donation to the HOPE Garden,” states Joe Dedman, President and Chief Executive Officer, German American Insurance. “With the good works of the HOPE Garden, this money will help many families in need.”
Mike Jones, Executive Director of the Memorial Hospital Foundation, stated, “Without the support of generous benefactor such as German American Insurance, we would never be able to complete the work that we are doing in HOPE Garden. As a result of similar contributions, we have been able to feed over 715 families with 3,300 pounds of food in six counties. We are grateful for the financial support.”
