Centier Bank Donates $1,000 to Marshall County Housing Project
November 23, 2021
PLYMOUTH, IND. – Centier Bank recently made $1,000 donation to St. Katharina Kasper Serenity Place, an 18-unit housing project in Plymouth.
After identifying the need for housing for low-income and homeless families in Plymouth and surrounding areas, the Marshall County Economic Development Corporation, along with development company, Garden Court, Inc., teamed up to build the 11,000 sq. foot residential building.
“The building will provide housing for homeless families with children,” explained Rod Ludwig. “This is stable housing that will help children learn and develop and improve their lives.”
Ludwig said the project has been years in the making and the $1,000 community donation from Centier Bank is used to help furnish the units for residents.
“This housing project is the first of its kind in Marshall County, and costs were high to get the construction completed, leaving us to have to fundraise to help furnish the apartments,” Ludwig said. “That’s where Centier stepped in with their generous donation. We truly appreciate their gift, and it will make a difference in the lives of the families who will be able to finally have a place to call home.”
Brian Wujcik, Centier Bank branch manager in Plymouth, said he feels excited for the families who are getting settled in their new homes at Serenity Place.
“It’s our honor to be able to help such an important cause in our community, and to help our neighbors,” Wujcik said. “The most important thing a community bank can do is give back to those in need. We’re happy to contribute to these families’ new beginnings.”
