Across Northeastern Pennsylvania, our employees are involved giving generously of their time and talent. Through community volunteerism you will find employees dedicated to helping others in a variety of activities. These include participating in home builds, walking to raise funds for nonprofit organizations, organizing food drives and being active on boards and committees.
Through the Community Caring Network, a volunteer program that provides employees with paid time off, FNCB employees volunteer hundreds of hours annually at local community organizations.
Here are just a few of the organizations we help:
FNCB's commitment to be Simply a better bank® would not be possible without the dedication and service our employees give to the community every day. They are the people you see mentoring children, building Habitat homes, feeding the homeless and cleaning local parks.

I believe the greatest gift we can give is the gift of ourselves. Volunteering has made me a better person, knowing that I helped by providing assistance to the community to make it a better and more prosperous place.
Volunteering is very important. It not only helps out the person, animal or organization but it boosts to your self-confidence and self-esteem. Knowing that you have done something good for someone else gives you a sense of accomplishment - and a sense of pride in the job performed.
The better you feel about yourself, the more likely you are to have a positive view on life and your future goals. Volunteering has made me more aware of the problems that people face every day and made me feel fortunate to live life the way I do.
Although volunteer work can be hard, strenuous or dirty and frustrating, it is extremely rewarding. Volunteering is one of the best ways to make a difference in your community, offering a way to have a real and lasting impact.
I enjoy giving my time to help every chance I get, from finding a new home for an unwanted animal to revitalizing a homeless shelter. It is a way to reach out and touch the lives of others in a positive way. It is motivating to know I can make a difference in another person or animal's life.
I will continue to volunteer my time and service for as long as I am able. There is no greater accomplishment than seeing a smile in the eyes of someone you have helped or the wag of a tail on a dog who just found a new home.
My volunteer experience gave me the opportunity to represent FNCB in the community and work together with a team of colleagues also committed to making a difference. Without their energy and support I would not have had such a positive experience.
The fundraiser we held to benefit the newly established Ronald McDonald Family Room at Geisinger Wyoming Valley was a rewarding experience. Through our homemade chocolate sale we were able to raise enough money to purchase a commercial vacuum for the new family room. Our hard work was not only appreciated by the Ronald McDonald House family, but we were also able to fulfill a need for the organization.
I am pleased to have had the opportunity to give back to an organization who so willingly serves the families of children who are hospitalized in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Through my volunteer experience, I have had the pleasure of meeting several volunteers who are committed to the success of the Ronald McDonald House. I have also had the privilege to meet the Officers, Directors and Board members who so graciously give of themselves and their time as they are dedicated to the mission of the Ronald McDonald House.
Without these individuals and their passion, the continued success of â€œThe House that Love Builtâ€ wouldn't be possible.
I volunteered at an ovarian cancer fashion runway show which was organized by my mom who is an ovarian cancer survivor.
My mom teaches children and adults how to sew and wanted to raise awareness and help other cancer patients to defray the cost of their treatments. So she thought of doing a fashion show with her students modeling all the wonderful items they have made.
She had such an overwhelming response the first year, she has made it a yearly event with all proceeds donated to the Delta Medix Foundation for Cancer Care.
To see the smiles on her students' faces and how she has enriched their lives in so many ways made me so proud of my mom.
To me, volunteering means you have the opportunity to brighten the life of someone each time you volunteer. It means that each action, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, can help the health and well-being of a fellow human being.
