The Farmers Bank’s Board of Directors recently authorized a $75,000 challenge grant for ONE80 Recovery Resources. The challenge grant will match, dollar-for-dollar, new donations from donors who wish to make a contribution to ONE80 Recovery Resources between Nov. 10, 2020 and March 1, 2021.

The Farmers Bank will match dollar-for-dollar new funds donated up to $75,000 from November 10, 2020 and March 1, 2020. For example, if donors give $75,000 to ONE80 Recovery Resources, The Farmers Bank will match up to $75,000 and grant ONE80 Recovery Resources a total of $150,000. Donations to ONE80 Recovery Resources are tax-deductible.

A special account has been set up at The Farmers Bank for this purpose. Checks may be deposited at any Farmers Bank location or mailed to The Farmers Bank at 9 E. Clinton St., Frankfort, IN 46041. All checks should specify ONE80 Recovery Resources on the memo line.

“In recent years the opioid epidemic has created the need for projects like ONE80,” said Paul Fry, vice-chairman of ONE80 Recovery Resources. “The project will be a 16-bed (60-bed future expansion) in-patient residential recovery facility for men seeking recovery from addictions.” A groundbreaking ceremony for the new Frankfort ONE80 facility will be announced shortly.

“Our community, like many others in this country, has been adversely impacted by the opioid epidemic,” said Karen F. Gregerson, president and CEO of The Farmers Bank. “Besides the devastating effect on the family and on our community, it effects the economic prosperity of Clinton County. This challenge grant will help ONE80 Recovery Resources provide life-changing services that will strengthen local families and provide treatment opportunities for those seeking recovery from addiction. I strongly believe ONE80 Recovery Resources will make a positive impact on fighting the opioid crisis in Clinton and surrounding counties. The Farmers Bank is proud to be a small part of this vital effort.”

ONE80 Recovery Resources, Inc., is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) faith-based organization headquartered in Frankfort.

ONE80 has the mission of providing this community and surrounding communities with services and resources for recovery from addiction.
