For the third straight year, FNCB Bank collected over 1,000 pounds of food to benefit area food pantries and soup kitchens through their recently completed "Christmas in July" food drive.
Throughout the month of July, in partnership with WBRE and WYOU TV, FNCB collected canned goods, non-perishable food items and monetary donations at each of their 19 community offices in Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wayne counties, as well as employee administrative centers.
The donations will help stock shelves at Catholic Social Services food pantries and the Weinberg Regional Food Bank.
"For the third straight year our customers and staff filled the collection boxes," said Mike Cummings, FNCB Marketing Officer. "At a time of the year when pantry shelves are desperately low, the items collected as well as considerable monetary donations will help many local families in need."
The Christmas in July drive represents part of FNCB's larger Community Caring initiative. Through outreach programs, donations and an employee volunteer network, FNCB is committed to helping the communities they serve.
FNCB Bank, locally-based for over 100 years, continues as Northeastern Pennsylvania's premier community bank — offering a full suite of personal, small business and commercial banking solutions with industry-leading mobile, online and in-branch products and services.
