ACNB Helping Hands is an initiative created and funded by ACNB Bank, as well as our employees and board members. Helping Hands supports local restaurant customers and community members in need. Together with Firehouse Grill of Littlestown, PA, we provided 200 beef pot pie and roasted chicken dinners to residents of Clearview Terrace Apartments, which is affiliated with Hanover Housing Authority Corporation in Hanover, PA.
Husband and wife restaurant owners Sarah and Kyle Bogus are customers of ACNB Bank. As shared by Sarah in an email:
“I wanted to send a thank you to everyone for their help yesterday. It warmed our hearts to see the community and the smiles it brought. We really enjoyed reading the thank you notes from Clearview Terrace Apartments residents. Thank you to ACNB for sponsoring such a generous meal for the community. Firehouse Grill is honored to be involved with ACNB Helping Hands. It is a blessing for our business during this difficult time due to Covid-19.”
Clearview Terrace Apartments were developed by the Greater Hanover Housing Corporation, a non-profit body of citizens concerned about housing for low-income senior citizens (62 and over) and disabled individuals. The purpose of the organization is to provide on a non-profit basis, rental housing and related facilities and services especially designed to meet the physical, social, and psychological needs of aging and disabled persons and contribute to their health, security, happiness and usefulness in longer living.
According to Wanda Shaffer, Clearview Apartments Manager, “Following the first week of meals, we heard nothing but positive comments from our residents. They liked the beef pot pie and were impressed with the homemade noodles. It was great having ACNB Bank and Firehouse Grill staff members working together to get the take-out containers ready for distribution. All of this was made possible from the donation from ACNB Bank. It is great to see businesses help each other and in turn help those less fortunate.”
