ACNB Bank Embraces Community Involvement -
Employees Contribute More Than 8,200 Volunteer Hours in 2016.
ACNB Bank recognizes the impact of the community involvement and volunteerism embraced by the Bank’s 294 employees working in the four southcentral Pennsylvania counties of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin and York.
According to James P. Helt, ACNB Bank President, “As a community bank celebrating 160 years of service, ACNB Bank is very much at the heart of community life in our business footprint --- supporting those organizations and programs that make the markets we serve desirable places to live, work and play. Our employees serve as dedicated volunteers and leaders with many charitable, civic, educational and professional organizations throughout the year as a representative of the Bank or on their own time. I am truly grateful for this spirit of volunteerism and unique culture we enjoy at ACNB Bank.”
In 2016, ACNB Bank’s employees supported 185 community organizations in the Bank’s primary market areas and collectively contributed 8,221 volunteer hours, which are valued at $192,371 in Pennsylvania as designated by the industry standard set by www.independentsector.org.
In addition, Bank staff members made a positive impact in the local community by coordinating food and toy drives, raising funds to benefit local organizations and families, and educating youth and adults on the importance of developing healthy financial skills. In 2016 alone, the Bank’s employees collected over 1,700 pounds of food, raised $11,700 for local community organizations, and delivered financial literacy presentations to 1,056 school students and adults.
Special activities and partner community organizations included United Way of Adams County’s Bag the Bounty Food Drive, Big Brothers Big Sisters of York & Adams Counties’ Bowl for Kids’ Sake, American Heart Association’s Adams County Heart and Stroke Walk, American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Hanover, and, South Central Community Action Programs’ Back to School Project.
“I believe our employees’ genuine commitment to our customers and community is a fundamental reason why ACNB Bank has remained an independent community bank for 160 years. We look forward to another rewarding year of giving back to the community in a meaningful way,” added Mr. Helt.
