MainSource Bank recently donated $1,000 to Advocates for Children, an organization that advocates for abused and neglected children in Bartholomew, Decatur and Jennings counties in Indiana.

Advocates for Children provides volunteer advocates who are appointed by a judge to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in order to ensure that every child has the opportunity to thrive in a safe, loving and permanent home.

MainSource recently hosted its Community Development Week to engage in the local communities, providing donations and support. MainSource encourages its team members to be involved through volunteering, financial education or charity work.

MainSource also highlighted a special week of offering encouraging emails and inspiring employees to be a force of good.
