“This is definitely a community project with the help of our generous credit union members and some wonderful restaurants in town working together to give back to our community,” said Partners 1st Federal Credit Union Huntington Branch Sales Manager Beth Blocker. “Our credit union is honored to give back and help out our community with this successful project!”

Andrews Principal Amy Rudolf and Andrews Counselor Mindy Reust were present to accept the donation at the Partners 1st Federal Credit Union branch in Huntington.

“I am grateful for the community of Huntington and Partners 1st Credit Union members for their generous support of our students,” Rudolf said. “Our students will appreciate hats, gloves and mittens as we brave another Indiana winter.”

In addition, Partners 1st Federal Credit Union raised 210 non-perishable food items and cash to donate to the Love INC food bank in Huntington as part of the Warm Hands and Warm Bellies project.
