1st Source Bank recently teamed up with the Salvation Army to provide personal care baskets for people in need within our community. A personal care basket consists of a laundry basket filled with the basic necessities like shampoo and laundry soap that are often taken for granted.
Twelve banking centers in 1st Source Bank's East Region, which includes Elkhart and Kosciusko Counties, prepared the personal care baskets and recently delivered them to the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army estimates the cost of a personal care basket to be approximately $60. This year the Salvation Army hopes to have 550 personal care baskets available.
