In response to the current health crisis, F&M Trust today announced a donation of $100,000 to support COVID-19 relief efforts in Central Pennsylvania.
The contribution will provide those on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis, including first responders and nonprofit organizations, with the resources they need to act quickly and protect the most vulnerable.
Among the organizations receiving funds from F&M Trust are the United Way chapters in Franklin County, Carlisle/Cumberland County, Shippensburg and the Greater Harrisburg/Capital Region. Relief funds will also be distributed to first responders, including fire companies and EMS units that support F&M Trust’s 22 Community Offices across Central Pennsylvania. Additionally, funds from the donation will be disbursed to the Fulton County Family Partnership.
“For over a century, F&M Trust has been supporting our communities in times of need, and now is no different. As a community bank, we view it as our responsibility to help the people in our communities who are struggling to keep their families housed and fed during this outbreak,” said Tim Henry, President and CEO of F&M Trust. “Now, more than ever, F&M Trust is stepping up to be a force for good for our neighbors in Central Pennsylvania. We believe together, we will get through this unprecedented challenge.”
Of the bank’s donation, $10,000 was contributed by the employees of F&M Trust.
Henry added: “This $10,000 contribution is a testament to F&M Trust employees, who selflessly give of their time and money year after year to support local organizations. This outpouring of charity and goodwill does not surprise me, but it nevertheless makes me proud.”
F&M Trust continues to serve its customers through drive-up services, ATMs, online banking, mobile banking and telephone banking. The bank also provides banking services that require an in-person meeting by appointment only.
