Employees from FNCB Bank, locally based for more than 100 years, recently donated $1,700 and 220 gifts to 17 local families as part of the Bank’s “Adopt-A-Family” holiday project.
More than 200 FNCB staff members participated this year in Adopt-a-Family, the Bank’s signature holiday gift-giving event. The program matches local families in need from the Catherine McAuley Centers of Lackawanna and Luzerne County, Children and Youth Services of Wayne County and Victims Intervention Program in Honesdale with those wishing to donate.
“Since launching the program seven years ago, 80 families have been matched as well as filling wish lists at a number of organizations,” said Mike Cummings, Vice President, Marketing Manager. “Unfortunately the need grows every year but our team keeps meeting the challenge to help deserving families have a brighter holiday season.”
The Adopt-a-Family project is part of FNCB’s larger Community Caring initiative. As a true, local community bank, FNCB is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
