Old National Awards $21,000 in Tools for Schools Grants
16 schools throughout Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and Wisconsin receive $1,000 grants.
Old National Bank recently completed its third annual Tools for Schools grant promotion, a company-wide campaign created to help get the school year started right for countless students in need in local communities.
The Tools for Schools grant promotion was conducted during the month of September. Visits were encouraged to visit Old National’s Facebook page to vote for a school to receive a Tools for Schools grant. A voting page was created for each of Old National’s regions throughout Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and Wisconsin with participating school districts pre-populated to make the voting collection easy. 99,184 votes were cast for nearly 840 schools in approximately 358 cities. Grants for $1,000 are now being awarded to the schools with the most votes in each region. A $6,000 grant is going to Sacred Heart School in Warsaw, Indiana for receiving the most votes overall. The winning schools are listed below.
