For the second year in a row, Camp Red Cedar has been selected among the winners of Old National Bank’s “Choose Your Charity” contest celebrating the company’s growth in the Northeast Indiana region.
Once again the Communications Manager, Simon May, at Camp Red Cedar’s parent company, Benchmark Human Services, rallied employees in three office locations across the city to fill out forms to support the effort. “I was so happy to help out last year with this project, and to win it again has been fantastic” said May.
