FNCB, locally-based for over 100 years, recently presented representatives from the Anti-Bullying Coalition of The Luzerne Foundation with a $834.60 donation raised through a bank wide “Jeans for a Cause” dress down day in May.
Established by concerned citizens and area nonprofit organizations, the Coalition’s mission is to foster a whole community approach to solve the issues of bullying in our society through the following programming efforts: Youth/Student; Family/Community; Safe School; Professional Services; and Community Safety.
The organization was nominated by Paula Kashuba, Customer Service Representative, FNCB Exeter.
“In recent years bullying in our schools has been at an all-time high which has led to many suicides,” said Kashuba. “Many times, parents, teachers, and friends have no idea their loved one is being bullied. This program lets kids know they have a place to turn and informs bullies how their words and actions can so tragically affect one of their peers.”
The support of the Anti-Bullying Coalition of The Luzerne Foundation 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.
