Merrillville, Ind.-based Centier Bank donated $5,000 to a local nonprofit that assists people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The donation, to South Bend-based Logan Community Resources, Inc., is going toward the annual Sonya Ansari Center for Autism Garden Party fundraiser on July 15. 

Logan Community Resources provides autism and employment services, residential services, and day programs. Adria Minniear, chief philanthropy officer at The Logan Center, said the bank, along with other corporate sponsors, “are integral in putting on the event.” 

“We’re thrilled to have corporate partners like Centier Bank,” she said. “They believe in the mission at Logan.” 

Centier Bank Regional Sales Manager Amber Pulford is also on the event committee. 

“We at Centier are proud to support abilities and specifically, the contributions of neurodivergent individuals,” Pulford said. “As a community bank and a community service center, we both aim to create communities in which kindness and dignity enrich the lives of everyone. We all look forward to the event being a huge success in helping the families who rely on The Logan Center.”
