NORTH VERNON, Ind. — Rose Acre Farms’ Jen Acre Egg Farm donated $500 to the Jennings County Community Foundation Monday morning, aiding in their efforts in strengthening communities throughout Jennings County.

With the assistance of the Lilly Endowment, Inc. Challenge Match, the Jennings County Community Foundation will be adding a 200% match to the $500 donation from Rose Acre Farms, turning the $500 donation into $1500.

For over 25 years, the Community Foundation has worked together with such organizations as Jennings County Schools, Homeless Shelters, Domestic Violence, Parks and Recreations, Animal Shelters, Senior Resources, Reading Made Fun, Food Banks such as the Jennings County Coordinating Council and other local food pantries plus numerous other nonprofit organizations.

“We’re always just trying to make connections, help the community grow and try to help get money to where it needs to be to improve our community,” said Jessi Hill, a Community Foundation board member.

During their tenure, the Community Foundation has awarded more than $5,600,000 throughout greater North Vernon and the surrounding communities.

“I think it's a great thing that those at the Community Foundation are always willing to help out in our community,” said Mike Hines, Complex Manager of Rose Acre Farms’ Jen Acre Egg Farm. 

“Without them able to have their typical fundraisers this year, we thought this would be a great way to help them out. We’re always looking for opportunities to donate to organizations, like the Community Foundation, that are so beneficial to our communities.”
