The Moses Basket was nominated by Independence Bank and was chosen as Kentucky’s “Community Partnership Award” recipient through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati. This non-profit organization was awarded $5,000 to continue helping ease the transition of children placed into foster or relative care.
“They understand the challenges and the uncertainties that come with welcoming a child into a new home—and they strive to provide the necessary materials and financial support to alleviate some of the burdens. As a volunteer, I witnessed their tireless efforts to improve the lives of these vulnerable children and families. It has been truly inspiring.” — Emmy West, Independence Bank employee and Moses Basket volunteer
“We really prioritize banks who submit organizations that they’re involved with. Perhaps they sit on the board, volunteer and are financial supporters. So, I think, to win two years in a row is pretty stellar,” Brooke Smith, FHLB Cincinnati
Independence Bank has been Kentucky’s winner for the two consecutive years this program has been offered. Last year, Habitat for Humanity in Henderson County received the funds.
