First Merchants Helps the United Way to “Stuff the Bus”

June 25, 2012

DECATUR, Ind.— The First Merchants family participated in the Adams County United Way “Stuff the Bus” Day of Action on June 20. As event sponsors, the First Merchants banking centers of Adams County collected non-perishable food items in the weeks leading up to the event. Then, on June 20, First Merchants delivered the items they had collected to one of the four United Way collection sites around the county. A bus was waiting to be stuffed with the collected items at each of the donation sites. The donations collected at the “Stuff the Bus” event will be directly distributed to eight county food pantries. First Merchants hopes to continue its community commitment through the support of other county efforts in the future.
