ACNB Bank Embraces Community Involvement
ACNB Bank recognizes the impact of the community involvement and volunteerism embraced by the Bank’s 350 employees working in southcentral Pennsylvania and northern Maryland.
According to James P. Helt, ACNB Bank President & CEO, “As a community bank celebrating more than 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 representatives of the Bank or on their own time. I am truly grateful for this spirit of volunteerism and unique culture we enjoy at our Bank.”
In 2017, ACNB Bank’s employees supported 165 community organizations in the Bank’s primary market areas and collectively contributed 7,532 volunteer hours, which are valued at $179,938 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 a number of drives and collections, raising funds to benefit local organizations, and educating youth and adults on the importance of developing sound financial skills. In 2017, the Bank’s employees collected 367 toys, 1,650 pounds of food, 173 coats, 227 books, and more than 350 school supply items; raised $32,887 to benefit local community organizations and $3,125 for hurricane relief efforts in Texas and Florida; helped 184 local residents shred 12,900 pounds of confidential documents; and, delivered financial literacy presentations to 1,288 students and adults.
“I believe our employees’ genuine commitment to our customers and community is a fundamental reason why ACNB Bank has remained an independent community bank since 1857. We look forward to another rewarding year of giving back to the community in a meaningful way,” added Mr. Helt.
