NEW PALESTINE — Indiana Members Credit Union recently presented a check for $1,500 to New Palestine schools as part of an ongoing school spirit debit card program and sponsorship. The partnership allows New Palestine fans the opportunity to show their school spirit and support the athletic program by signing up for a New Palestine Dragons-themed debit card. Every time the card is used as a signature-based transaction, New Palestine athletics benefits. The more cards that are in use, the larger the contribution. Since beginning the program in 2018, New Palestine High School has earned $4,500 through the giveback program.
