(WBRE/WYOU-TV) Citizens and Northern Bank is teaming up with Blue Star Mothers of America to collect items for care packages for our men and women in the military.
It’s part of their “Giving Back, Giving Together” fundraising event.
The banks are looking for food items, toiletries and games to send to active military members who are overseas.
Each quarter the bank has a different theme for the Blue Star Mothers.
Once this wraps up, they’ll be working on the next theme for the organization. Organizers say so far the response from the community has been great.
“Well in it’s our culture to be giving back to our local communities and to give some real value and it’s driven by the employees. We’ve done this for about five years and we’ve raised over 250 thousand dollars for local and important charities in the area so this is a great one,” Said Sam Lush, Vice President Citizens & Northern Bank in Williamsport.
This collection will continue through April first.
