NEW CASTLE, Ind. (Feb 27, 2013) - Friday, February 15, Ameriana Bank presented more than 12,000 personal care items and a check for more than $1,250 to the USO of Indiana from the Bank's "Help Our Heroes" campaign - a salute to Hoosiers serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
December through January, all Ameriana locations collected personal care items to send with Indiana servicemen and servicewomen as they deploy for tours of duty. In addition, for any new "Like" the Ameriana Bank Facebook page received, Ameriana donated $2 to the USO of Indiana to benefit programs and services that lift the spirits of troops and their families.

We have many associates, past and present, who are connected to veterans, who have loved ones who are currently serving or who have served themselves. The effort united us all during the holiday season, and as a community bank, we truly believe in and support the USO of Indiana's mission."
