To help kick off Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana’s Best Summer Ever campaign, First Merchants Bank is donating $7,500 to the organization as part of a dollar-for-dollar matching gift. Through July 3, donations of at least $50 to Boys & Girls Clubs will be matched by First Merchants Bank up to $7,500.
With summer in full swing, Indiana Conservation Officers remind Hoosiers to make safety a priority when recreating around bodies of water. “Even when fun is your main focus, always recognize the danger water poses, even to strong swimmers or experienced boaters,” said Capt. Jet Quillen of DNR Law Enforcement.
Legacy Foundation Response to Advancing Equity
Over the past few weeks, as people across the globe push back against a long history of anti-Black violence and injustice, we have been reflecting on our place in the movement. The recent, needless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many Black Americans have rightly sparked a renewed demand for change. While we are disheartened that it has taken this long and this much to drive our nation toward equity, we are hopeful at seeing people across spectrums of age and race come together to bend the arc.
