C&N Bank Raises $72,635 For Children

Giving Back, Giving Together program supports children in need

 

by C&N Bank, , - February 12, 2018

WELLSBORO, PA – Citizens & Northern Bank’s employee giving program, Giving Back, Giving Together raised over $72,635 for 16 local organizations that have made it their mission to support local children in need. On February 8, our team captains and partnering organizations came together at The Wellsboro House to celebrate and distribute checks.

Since its inception in 2015, our Giving Back, Giving Together community fundraising campaign has exceeded our greatest expectations. For 2017, we raised the bar by setting a goal of $60,000, knowing the amount of work and commitment it would take to reach it. We are proud and humbled to announce that we surpassed our goal once again, raising over $72,000 for underprivileged children in our area! On top of the monetary donations, we also collected 7,781 food, clothing and hygiene items, and our team members donated their personal time by volunteering on 116 occasions.

We began our 2017 annual GBGT campaign, as always, by asking employees to nominate causes that would make a meaningful impact in our communities. The entire bank then voted for the cause they considered the most deserving. After voting to help local children who may not receive the care or attention they deserve, local C&N teams reached out to organizations in the area that work to enrich the lives of children in need. Each team organized fundraisers and volunteer outings and collected donations for the cause. Fundraisers were primarily done during the event weeks at the end of each quarter. The success of GBGT is a direct reflection of the character of our employees and their commitment to their communities.

Some of our most successful fundraisers and awareness campaigns to date came in 2017. For Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, the Tioga County Human Services Agency held an event on the Green in Wellsboro where C&N sponsored a bouncy house for the children and several employees volunteered their time to help raise awareness. In June, we held our C&N Charity Classic which raised over $20,000 for Giving Back, Giving Together. In November, we conducted a Facebook contest called “Thank a Local Volunteer Child Advocate.” David Gray, founder of St. Ann’s Academy in Hornell, NY, was the very deserving winner. 2017 was also the year we launched #GBGTImpactStories on social media. These short video clips feature members of the community as they share their personal stories about the importance of Giving Back, Giving Together in their communities. Look for more of these in the future!

In 2018, we look forward to another year with another worthy cause that will make a positive and lasting impact in the community. In December, our employees voted to support Literacy & Education through Public Libraries. This year, we will raise funds and awareness for local libraries to help them provide services for those who rely on them. Public libraries strengthen our communities by providing unique opportunities for children and adults alike to learn, network and connect with one another. They are often under-funded and under-staffed. You can expect to see our team members out in the community again this year conducting fundraisers, book drives, volunteer readings, and much, much more. We hope that you will join us in helping our local libraries flourish. Look for communications in the near future on how you can be a part of something special again this year.
