(1/5/201) — 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!”
