Last year, the city of Huntingburg was selected as a member of the state of Indiana's Stellar Communities program, a multi-agency partnership designed to fund comprehensive community development projects in Indiana's smaller communities.
To help support and celebrate this unique designation, Kimball Electronics (NASDAQ: KE) announced a two-year support gift pledge to the Huntingburg Stellar Fund of $25,000 ($12,500 for two years).
"We are excited about the fund's long-term regional impact. The Heritage Trail project and the Workforce Housing project are two among the many identified as Huntingburg Stellar projects that would be valued by current as well as future Kimball Electronics employees," says Julie Dutchess, Vice President, Human Re-sources, Kimball Electronics.
The city's Stellar projects will have a dramatic visible and aesthetic impact on Huntingburg, stimulate new and existing business growth, and provide incentive for new investment and re-location to the region.
"Kimball Electronics supports local events and activities that benefit community and charitable projects in the communities where our employees work and live,"adds Dutchess. "We strive to help our communities be great places."
The Kimball Electronics Foundation focuses on donations aimed toward community, charitable, education-al and scientific endeavors.
