Centier Bank, Girl Scouts Donate Cookies, Blankets to NWI Veterans Village

March 9, 2018

NWI Veterans Village - Centier BankGary – Centier Bank partnered with local Girl Scouts troops to donate Girl Scout Cookies and blankets to the residents of the NWI Veterans Village, a 44 unit multi-family housing unit in Gary, Indiana. 

All units are low income and set aside for veterans; addressing the need for new, high-quality housing for homeless veterans. 

Centier and the Veterans Village began their partnership with a bank book drive to create and fill the Village’s Little Free Library bookcases for Veterans Day in 2017. The Little Free Library provides residents with access to books, as well as resources that open their minds to the world and opportunities outside their neighborhoods. Centier Bank and the Veterans Village have plans to grow their partnership in many directions.

"The veterans and staff at NWI Veterans Village are extremely grateful for the ongoing kindness and support we receive from Centier Bank and Community Relations and Financial Capabilities Officer Dian Reyome," explained Property Manager, Dara Grady. "The residents genuinely treasure their Little Free Library, which is always stocked with books supplied by our Centier friends. Centier never lets too much time pass before reaching out to plan another visit.
