Donation helps provide resources for education programs
First National Community Bank (FNCB), the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania, today announced an Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to the Wayne County Public Library.
The $4,720 donation will help the library support their Careers without College and Homework Help programs.
"FNCB and other local corporations that utilize the EITC program have all made an enormous difference in the resources available to help students succeed,” said Molly Rodgers, Wayne County Library director. “These educational resources are available to any student in our local districts who have access to the internet at home, after school, or even on mobile devices. Providing online access to resources helps students by overcoming a major barrier in rural areas where transportation to libraries can be a problem."
The support of the Wayne County Library 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.
