INDIANAPOLIS – Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) is proud to stand with Silver in the City, a locally owned small business in central Indiana that raised more than $44,000 in one day for PPINK.

Silver in the City will be presenting PPINK with the raised funds on Feb. 2 at 10:30 a.m. at their store on 434 Mass Ave.

"Silver in the City wanted to be a part of making positive change within our community on Jan. 20, which is why we decided to pledge 100 percent of our in-store and online sales to PPINK for the day," said Kristin Kohn, Owner and Founder of Silver in the City. "We believe that what PPINK provides to our community is invaluable; it is something we support and want to protect. We were overwhelmed with the backing from communities near and far, and it is that support which drove sales to be five times what we had anticipated for the day."

"PPINK has an amazing group of supporters that recognize when Hoosiers have access to accurate, unbiased, high quality health care, people are able to control and shape their destinies," said Karen Friss, Chief Development Officer of PPINK. "We are pleased to accept this generous donation from Silver in the City."
