La Porte’s Pax Center set for growth
La PORTE — The Pax Center will be growing even more downtown, thanks to a $5,000 grant from the Flagstar Foundation.
The grant presentation was held at the La Porte branch of Flagstar Bank on Wednesday afternoon. The La Porte location is one of 52 branches Flagstar purchased from Wells Fargo last year.
After its December opening, the bank was given the opportunity to award a $5,000 grant to a local non-profit organization. The Flagstar Foundation will be awarding $5,000 grants to non-profits in each of their 52 new communities, 33 of which are located in Indiana.
The Flagstar staff nominated local non-profits which they deemed worthy of the grant. It was a race between three contenders for the La Porte branch’s grant money. The voting was between the La Porte County Habitat for Humanity, the Youth Services Bureau of La Porte County and the Pax Center.
