FNCB donates $3,500 and more than 1,000 basic needs items to the Women’s Resource Center to help support victims of domestic abuse.
First National Community Bank (FNCB), the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania, announced the donation of $3,500 and more than 1,000 personal needs items to the Women’s Resource Center to help support victims of domestic abuse.
Throughout the month of November, FNCB Community Caring Team members collected the items and monetary donations at their 21 branch locations and employee administrative centers.
Among the items collected were bath and body products (soap, lotions, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, etc.), coloring books and crayons, hats/gloves, slippers, socks, bathrobes, umbrellas, baby items and retail store gift cards.
The Women’s Resource Center seeks to respond to and actively change the prevalence of domestic violence in our community. The Center provides victims of domestic violence with shelter, clothing, food and supplies to help them get on with their lives.
For many years the Women’s Resource Center has been responding to the needs of survivors of domestic violence in Northeastern Pennsylvania,”
said assistant vice-president/regional manager Madolyn MacArthur. “The services they provide make a tremendous impact to victims and their families. We are proud to support their efforts, especially at this time of the year when the need is greatest.”
The support of the Women’s Resource Center 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.
