On Sunday, April 15, more than 50 IUCU employees, family and friends walked in support of Bloomington’s 10th Annual “Homeward Bound” 5K Walk.

Since its inception in 2003, Homeward Bound has raised more than $3 million for over 100 affordable housing and homeless service providers across the state. It is sponsored locally by area social service providers and key community partners such as IU Credit Union. 100% of the funds raised by this event stay in Bloomington to help people experiencing homelessness with shelter, food and other emergency assistance needs.

IU Credit Union is proud to sponsor the 2011-2012 Original Art Rain Barrel Auction presented by the IUSB Center for a Sustainable Future. Rain barrels were painted by area artists and artist groups and will be auctioned off to the public. All proceeds will benefit the IUSB Center for a Sustainable Future, South Bend Museum of Art and the Artists/Artist Groups. Rain barrels help create a sustainable future by capturing rain water for watering flowers and vegetables, keeping storm water from entering the river and beautifying yards.

The IU Credit Union rain barrel will be on display at the branch located on the campus of IU South Bend from April 1 through April 19. It will then be on display at the South Bend Museum of Art from April 20 through May 4. On May 4, it will serve as a bistro table at the Auction and will then be donated to a local community, school, not-for-profit or Unity garden group.

The aution will take place Friday, May 4 at 7:00pm South Bend Museum of Art Century Center. For more information, please call 574-520-4429.
