Financial Center hosted its 15th annual charity golf outing on June 18, 2013 benefiting the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry located on East 30th Street in Indianapolis. The Credit Union presented the Food Pantry with a check for $10,000 this past Tuesday as a result of the event.
Financial Center shifted its primary annual giving to St. Vincent de Paul in 2008 amidst the economic recession and high unemployment rates, recognizing the immediate impact the food pantry has on members of the Indianapolis community. Over the last six years, Financial Center has donated more than $46,000 to St. Vincent's Food Pantry. In addition to monetary contributions, Financial Center employees also donate volunteer hours to the Food Pantry which serves over 3,100 households each week, making it the largest food pantry in the Midwest.
