1st Source donates $5,000 for car seat safety program
1st Source Bank has donated $5,000 to the Franciscan Alliance Foundation in support of their program to reduce the number of child-occupant fatalities and injuries in motor-vehicle accidents in LaPorte and Porter counties.
Bob Ax, 1st Source Regional President, presented the donation to Tony Englert, with the Franciscan Alliance Foundation, and Jennifer Homan of St. Anthony Health.
The funds will assist with a permanent car seat inspection site and monthly events at retail stores, health fairs and community events to ensure that parents are educated in properly restraining children in motor vehicles. Additionally, the funds will provide car seats for those in need of assistance.
