Harrisburg, PA — Mid Penn Bank recently presented more than 100 first responder organizations in Pennsylvania with a total of $22,000 through the bank’s First Responders Donation Program. The donations were made through Mid Penn Bank and Scottdale Bank & Trust, a division of Mid Penn Bank, located in Western PA.
The First Responders Donation Program was instituted by the bank to thank the fire companies, ambulance associations and other organizations that protect and serve the local community. The program rewards first responders with a donation calculated from their average account balance.
This year’s donation demonstrates a significant increase in giving over 2019. “2020 has challenged all of us in new ways, particularly those who have been working on the front lines throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mid Penn Bank President & CEO, Rory G. Ritrievi. “We felt it was important to recognize their unwavering dedication to their communities by increasing our support.”
Mid Penn Bank is strongly committed to supporting charitable organizations through various means, including corporate donations, employee volunteerism and fundraising. The First Responders Donation Program demonstrates just a fraction of the charitable giving Mid Penn Bank distributes to its communities each year. Mid Penn regularly contributes to causes including health and human services, community improvement and education.
