JASPER — Hoosier Hills Credit Union representatives met recently with Jasper Mayor Terry Seitz to pledge a three-year commitment totaling $30,000 toward the sponsorship of significant community projects including the Jasper LEADS — Library, Enrichment, Arts, Downtown — project.

The Community Fund Drive for the LEADS project was launched through the combined efforts of the Jasper Community Arts Commission and the Jasper Public Library Board who plan to construct a Jasper Cultural Center for the library and arts and assist in ongoing program development. The project also supports the renovation of the historic Astra Theatre and the refurbishing of the current Jasper Arts Center for additional quality arts programming.

Hoosier Hills President and CEO George McNichols is looking forward to both the cultural and economic growth the Community Fund Drive will support. “Part of our mission at Hoosier Hills is to be better for our members by making a positive difference in their communities,” he said. “We appreciate the efforts of the Jasper Community Arts Commission and that of the Jasper Public Library and are so pleased to have the opportunity to partner in the success of their vision.”

The community investment in the Jasper LEADS project is just one of many local investments Hoosier Hills Credit Union has made in Jasper and surrounding areas.
