Beacon awards $1,750 the county organizations

Posted: Friday, September 3, 2021

Nearly 5,000 votes from residents of Huntington County determined the winners of Beacon Credit Union’s 10th annual Project Spotlight program. Thanks to the engagement of area communities, Beacon Credit Union will be donating $1,750 to three charitable organizations/projects in Huntington County.

The winners for 2021 are: first place – Drake Goetz Memorial Park, $1,000; second place – Helping Paws Pet Haven, Inc., $500 and a bonus draw to the Huntington County Humane Society for $250.

The program received 102 nominations and over 36,000 votes overall for charitable organizations this year in one month of voting. The voting process was held during the month of July this year. The public was able to vote via social media, Beacon Credit Union’s website, or in one of its 19 full-service member centers. A check presentation was held on September 1 at Beacon’s Huntington Member Center, 136 Northpoint Avenue, with the winning organizations.

Project Spotlight is a program created by Beacon Credit Union that awards charitable organizations that reach out to provide valuable services to their communities. Nominations are taken from each community in which Beacon Credit Union operates a full-service member center. The community then votes to determine which charitable organizations receives funding. In 2021, we awarded three winners in each of our communities.
