Donation will help purchase new winter coats for Head Start participants
First National Community Bank (FNCB), the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania, today announced a donation to the Head Start Program in Wayne and Pike Counties.
The donation will help fund the Scranton Lackawanna Human Development Agency's Winter Coat Project which provides a new coat for every child in the Head Start program.
Almost 20 years ago, the Winter Coat Project was started by volunteer members of SLHDA and the Workforce Investment Board to provide new winter apparel to deserving children in the community. Since its inception, almost 15,000 new winter coats have been purchased and distributed to children enrolled in Head Start, including 1,425 last year.
The support of the Wayne-Pike County Head Start program represents part of a larger Community Caring initiative by FNCB. Through outreach programs, donations and an employee volunteer network, FNCB is committed to helping the communities they serve.
Founded in 1910, FNCB supports its mission: Simply a better bank(tm) with an endless commitment to the communities we serve. With 21 branches throughout Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe and Wayne counties, FNCB is the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania leading the way in personal, small business and commercial banking solutions.
