First National Community Bank (FNCB), the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania, today announced an Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to the Diocese of Scranton.
The $85,400 donation will help the Diocese of Scranton’s Scholarship Foundation provide tuition assistance to students enrolled in their pre-school, elementary and high school programs. Areas served by the Diocese of Scranton include Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe and Wayne counties.
Last year the Diocese of Scranton, through an EITC donation from FNCB, was able to provide this assistance to numerous income eligible families in our community.
“As an organization dedicated to serving our community, we are delighted to have the opportunity to participate in the EITC program and help provide scholarship assistance to many deserving students in our area,” said Joseph Earyes, FNCB First Senior Vice President/Retail Banking Officer.
The support of the Diocese of Scranton 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.
