ACNB Helping Hands

We've been a part of this community for more than 160 years and we know we are all stronger when we are committed to each other and lend a helping hand. That's why ACNB Bank is proud to launch a special initiative - ACNB Helping Hands. This project was created in response to the COVID-19 crisis, to help our community at this challenging time.

"Staff members and board members affiliated with ACNB Bank have personally contributed more than $13,000 to this effort. Combined with ACNB Bank’s commitment of $40,000 in funding, along with the restaurant and catering partners preparing the meals, we are all coming together under difficult and demanding circumstances for each other and for the benefit of those in need within our local communities.”
- James P. Helt, ACNB Bank President & Chief Executive Officer


Helping Local Restaurants and People In Need

Together we provided more than 3,000 meals in southcentral Pennsylvania

Locally owned restaurants make our communities unique and bring joy to many of us. But the COVID-19 pandemic hit the restaurant community hard. That’s why ACNB made a core contribution to help local restaurant customers and those in need. We partnered with nine ACNB Bank food service customers to supply meals to 8 community organizations. Our Maryland divisions provided an additional 2,500 meals for a grand total of nearly 6,000 meals.
