Orrstown Bank Employees Donate to Women In Need
January 05, 2011
Shippensburg, PA (1/5/2011) — Orrstown Bank employees continue to show their commitment to our communities, as more than 500 items ranging from personal toiletries to office supplies, laundry baskets, food, and household items were collected at the Bank’s North Pointe Operations Center and donated to Women In Need.
Lisa Dougherty, Director of Community Services, commented: “Most of the items will be used in the shelter and, with the donated items, we were able to create a 'care package' for a family (mother and child) moving from the shelter into a new home! The family received household and food items that will allow her to use her money for other important things in her new home.”
"Donations received from the community are essential to the work that we do," said Lisa. "They allow us to use our resources more efficiently and better serve the individuals and families that we work with. These items are often expensive and individuals and families often do without due to the need to pay other bills/expenses first. We truly appreciate Orrstown Bank’s support of Women In Need and the work that we do."
The donations were organized by Barb Thompson, Administrative Services Supervisor at Orrstown Bank, who noted “It's nice to know that something so small as our donations can mean a big difference to so many people. Orrstown Bank...what a great place to work!”
