Editor, Times-Union:
1st Source Bank is giving away money!  And you can help REAL Services receive a grant of $15,000 by completing a simple form and dropping it at a local branch.
Please print the form from our website at www.realservices.org  Nominations will be accepted at any 1st Source Bank location until close of business on Nov. 30, 2013.  Charities will be selected on the quantity and quality of entries received.  Mass produced forms will not be accepted, so please put your own personal touch on your nomination.
It is easy to know why REAL Services should be nominated:
1.  With the recent merger of REAL Services and Alzheimer's Services of Northern Indiana, we help people all across northern Indiana.
2.  Last year, we helped 30,000 people in northern Indiana!
3.  REAL Services has more than 20 programs that help our elderly residents live with dignity and as independently as possible.
4.  REAL Services also offers a range of services that work toward eliminating the causes of poverty, not just treating the symptoms.  
5.  REAL Services partners with other agencies in our community to support programs that enhance self-sufficiency for low-income families and senior citizens.
I could go on and on, but you get the idea.  You probably also know personal stories of people who have benefited from our services.
So thank you in advance, for supporting our mission in this simple way!  We cannot do it without YOUR help.
