Centier Bank, Summit Technology Group (STG) Supports 3 Local Nonprofits

January 10, 2022

MERRILLVILLE, Ind. –  Centier Bank teamed up with Summit Technology Group (STG) over the holiday season to donate a combined $15,000 to three local charities: True North, Hilltop Neighborhood House of Valparaiso, and Family House of Porter County.

Anthony Contrucci, Senior Vice President of Centier Bank, said STG’s Lenders Cooperative and Centier Bank donated $5,000 apiece to three local nonprofits that were focused on providing services and resources to strengthen the lives of children and families across Lake and Porter counties.

“Perhaps no time of year highlights the strength of communities more than the holidays,” Contrucci explained. “As a community-first financial institution, we’re inspired by the generosity of our neighbors and always eager to lend a hand. We’re grateful for the professional and charitable partnership with Lenders Cooperative that made this program possible.”

Benjamin Wallace, CEO of STG's Lenders Cooperative, said from the beginning of the partnership, it was clear to him that Centier Bank is a place that prioritizes the greater good of the community.

“We’re thrilled to partner with another values-driven business to help propel the missions of these wonderful nonprofit organizations forward,” Wallace said. “The impact that True North, Hilltop Neighborhood House, and Family House have on the community is significant, and we are honored to give to them.”

Michelle Michaels, Director of Development for Hilltop Neighborhood House, said the generous donation from Centier and Summit Technology Group will have a big impact on their food pantry clients.

“We will be able to purchase food for those who are food insecure,” Michaels explained. “Donations like this allow us to continue to sustain our Valparaiso community by feeding approximately 1,800 individuals per month. Our community members who rely on Hilltop Neighborhood House year round benefit greatly from the nourishment we are able to provide them, and this is a fantastic way to kick off 2022.”
