How would you describe your organization’s partnership with I&M?

I&M has made a significant impact on the Muncie Mission. In the recent year, I&M generously funded two commercial box trucks. These vehicles have played a crucial role in bolstering our operational capabilities, enabling us to effectively support our retail operations, provide moving assistance to transition clients to permanent housing and efficiently pick up valuable donations.

In what ways have you worked with I&M during this partnership?

The Muncie Mission has worked alongside I&M during the holiday season. They have demonstrated a deep commitment to our community’s welfare by providing financial support for Muncie Mission’s Annual Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. These events provide a delicious meal to around 800 and 1,000 community members in need each holiday season.
