First National Community Bank (FNCB), locally based for more than 100 years, collected over 1,000 pounds of food for area food pantries and soup kitchens through the recently completed “Christmas in July” food drive.
Throughout the month of July, in partnership with WBRE and WYOU TV, FNCB collected canned goods, non-perishable food items and monetary donations at each of their 19 community offices in Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wayne counties as well as employee administrative centers.
The donations helped stock the shelves at food pantries run by Catholic Social Services in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
“The response from our customers and employees was tremendous,” said Mike Cummings, FNCB Marketing Specialist. “It’s another example of FNCB and our community working together to help area residents in need.”
The Christmas in July drive 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.
