On Tuesday, February 22, 2022 (2.22.22), also known around the world as “Twosday,” FNCB Bank wanted to do something unique for this rare palindrome. Afterall, the date was so rare, another Twosday won't happen again for another 400 years, in 2422.
In addition to every employee wearing custom designed 2.22.22 t-shirts, team members were asked to nominate local charities to receive a special donation of $222.22.
Initially the Bank was going to select two winners for obvious reasons but selected four due to the tremendous response. In fact, the Bank selected two “human” winners, Ruth’s Place and the Children’s Advocacy Center and two “non-human” winners, Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge and Griffin Pond Animal Shelter.
“The response was overwhelming,” said Michael Cummings, FNCB Bank Vice President, Marketing Manager. “We’re glad we were able to have a little fun and help some very deserving organizations at the same time. In 2422 when FNCB is 512 years old, we will do it again.”
The Twosday fundraiser was part of FNCB’s larger Community Caring initiative. As a true, local community bank, FNCB Bank is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
