FNCB Bank Supports Local Groups

FNCB Bank recently donated $20,000 through the Pennsylvania Neighborhood Assistance Project Tax Credit Program to the Scranton-Lackawanna Human Development Agency for its Pre-Kindergarten Center of Excellence project. FNCB’s donation helped the SLHDA purchase the historic former Holy Rosary School in Scranton. The organization’s goal is to start offering in-person pre-school education services to children of low-income families this fall.
