In keeping with Old National Bank’s ongoing commitment to community and sustainability, the company recently donated 370 computers along with printers and other electronic equipment to Net Literacy, an Indianapolis-based, student-founded digital inclusion nonprofit.
“I’m thrilled with Old National Bank’s donation because we’ll be able to increase thousands of students’ access to computers and the Internet throughout Indiana. We have donated computers to more than a thousand schools and nonprofits and ONB’s donation will help us expand our program,” said Net Literacy student board member Agni Dhanabal. And it’s terrific that ONB’s Dan Nord braved a snow storm and below freezing weather to deliver them and helped off load the donated equipment!” Dan Nord is Old National Bank’s IT Asset Manager.
“This donation is a win for Indiana communities because of Net Literacy’s ability to repurpose this equipment for use by schools and nonprofits,” said Bob Jones, Old National president & CEO. “It also signals progress for Old National in our efforts to create a more sustainable work environment with less energy and paper usage.”
“Old National Bank’s partnership with Net Literacy began over five years ago when ONB supported the launch of our Financial Connects initiative through a summer program where students produced videos to teach other teens about financial literacy,” said Dan Kent, Founder of Net Literacy. “ONB’s Indianapolis Regional President Randy Reichmann met with our student volunteers to explain the importance of financial literacy and help students understand the tools and services that financial institutions like ONB makes available to increase financial literacy throughout the state. And with this latest donation of computers and printers, ONB showed once again that it is a company that continues to give back to the communities that it serves!”
