Help Navarro Farm Win up to $15,000 from Old National!
We need your help to earn a donation of up to $15,000 to Navarro Farm!
Old National Bank is launching their Choose Your Charity event on March 12, 2023! Everyone is invited to vote for their favorite local 501(c)3 nonprofit—once a day, every day, until March 31—by visiting the Choose Your Charity website at oldnational.com/cyc.
The nonprofits with the most votes from Old National’s Illinois, Iowa, Northwest Indiana and select Southeast Wisconsin communities will each get $5,000. That means we could be eligible to win $5,000 — and the non-profit with the overall most votes will get an additional $10,000. That’s a total of $15,000!
These funds could really make a difference to us. We’re asking that you take a few minutes out of your day to vote at oldnational.com/cyc.
Just key in Navarro in the bottom box on the left where is asks for the non-profit. Navarro Farm will pop up. Please forward to your friends and family.

Rooted in growth.
Thank you for your interest in Navarro Farm. Our desire to help and care for others has been in our hearts for ages, but the Farm is only in its infancy stages which means we must take small steps as we continue to develop out the program.
Our initial groups of participants will be somewhat limited and focused on the individual's capabilities. Our overall goal is to bypass any unforeseen challenges so we can expand opportunities to more groups, with greater success.
Program participants must be at least 14 years of age and able to participate in groups with a ratio of up to 5 participants to 1 staffer.
Participants must be independent with toilet needs. Additionally, participants and their family will complete an application to help us verify that we can accommodate their needs and make this a successful and fruitful experience for them and those around them.
We understand that parents of individuals with special needs can often be challenged with finding resources and outlets for their child’s development. If your child does not meet our current participation criteria or is not selected for the current program, we are partnered with other organizations that may be able to assist you.
We saw a need.
It is important for us to share the vision and goals of this special place that God has put in our hearts. As stated in the Bible, “That if we delight ourselves in Him, He will give us the desires of our hearts.” So now we must ask ourselves what are we going to do with this seed that God has planted within us? Are we going to water and tend to it and watch it grow and bear fruit, or are we going to allow the seed to wither away?
We chose the path to sow into the lives of others.
As parents we saw a need. This was a need not only in our son’s life but also in the lives of his friends, our family, and our community. It comes from our hearts and driven by the desire to play a part in the growth of individuals. Moreover, we feel beyond happy and blessed to do so.
Our goals are to nurture, elevate joy, and harvest growth not only in crops that thrive on the farm but in the lives of individuals with special needs. By sowing one seed at a time, we can help to make a lasting impact in their lives whilst coming from a place of love.
