The numbers tell only part of the story - in 2010 Orrstown Bank gave over $400,000 in donations to nearly 300 organizations, including $124,000 through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program.
However, it is the selfless dedication and countless volunteer hours from our employees that really make the difference. In late 2010, for example, a team of Orrstown employees participated in a Habitat for Humanity joint venture to build two homes in Shippensburg. In nearly triple digit heat, 10 of our dedicated team members spent the day framing a duplex that provided homes for two deserving families.
Another example of our outstanding employee involvement is the American Cancer Society's annual Relay for Life. The Orrstown Bank team of 60 plus members raised more than $10,000 in 2010 through a number of events.
Orrstown Bank also continued to support the United Way and exceeded our employee giving goal in 2010 with more that $31,000 in total contributions. In addition, we gave thousands more through our participation in various local United Way programs.
