Centier Bank Donates $1,000 to Oaklawn Foundation

March 17, 2022

ELKHART­­, Ind. — Centier Bank recently made a $1,000 community donation to the Oaklawn Foundation, a mental health and addiction center that provides prevention and early intervention programs across St. Joseph County.

Kari Tarman, Executive Director of the Oaklawn Foundation, said the donation will go toward helping sponsor “Oaklawn’s Got Talent,” on May 20. It is the foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

“This donation helps support the many programs that Oaklawn offers, such as Camp Mariposa, a camp for kids whose parents have a substance use disorder, suicide prevention programs, and adult assistance programs,” Tarman said. “We are very grateful for Centier’s support as they serve on our boards and support our fundraising initiatives.”

Oaklawn Foundation’s services span a continuum of care, including inpatient treatment, psychiatric services, therapy, care facilitation, skills training and more. These specialized services are designed to meet the community’s unique needs.

Adriana Bontreger, Branch Manager at Centier Bank’s Goshen Branch, serves on the board of Oaklawn Foundation and said she is proud to be part of both organizations that have a common goal of bettering the community and enriching lives.

“As a true community bank, Centier is honored to partner with Oaklawn Foundation and provide vital mental health services and programs to families in need,” Bontreger said.
