FNCB fundraiser

FNCB Bank, locally-based for 110 years, recently presented a check for $480.70 to the Dunmore Historical Society raised through a bank wide “Jeans for a Cause” dress down day. The Dunmore Historical Society’s mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the artifacts, archives, and bibliographic materials of the history of the Borough of Dunmore.

FNCB’s monthly fundraising effort encourages employees to make small donations in exchange for the opportunity to wear jeans to work. All employee donations are matched dollar for dollar by the bank.

Since launching the Jeans for a Cause program, FNCB employees have raised $55,144 for local non-profit organizations.

FNCB ribbon cutting

FNCB Bank recently celebrated the official grand opening of its new full-service community office at 100 South Blakely St. in Dunmore with a ribbon cutting.

As part of the “Dunmore Campus” revitalization project and after 109 years of operating at 102 East Drinker St., Dunmore, FNCB Bank constructed a brand-new community office across the street on the site of the Bank’s drive-thru.

The new $2.4 million dollar location features parking, a bright open floor plan with an FNCB Cafe, four large television screens with news and weather feeds, a hi-resolution exterior digital sign that we encourage non-profits to post messages on and cash recyclers to speed customer transactions.

In addition to the construction of the new bank, the former bank building has been transformed into class-A office space for the Bank’s commercial and retail banking teams.

The new Dunmore office lobby is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition, the drive-thru is open Monday – Thursday 8 am – 5pm; Friday 8 am – 6pm; and Saturday 9 a.m. to noon.
