FNCB Bank, locally-based for over 100 years, announced a $5,000 Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to the Allied Services dePaul School for Dyslexia. Since 2010, FNCB has contributed $1,200,000 to local educational and scholarship organizations through the program.
Allied Services dePaul School is committed to helping children overcome learning disabilities so they can return to conventional classrooms equipped with the academic skills and confidence they need to succeed. The school, based on Allied’s campus in Scranton, serves students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. The school’s specially trained faculty serve more than 70 students age 7 to 14 from 19 local school districts. dePaul’s small class sizes and well-structured system of programs are successful in helping students maximize abilities and compensate for disabilities.
FNCB’s donation will be used to provide tuition funding for students in need.
The support of Allied Services dePaul School for Dyslexia is part of FNCB’s larger Community Caring initiative. As a true, local community bank, FNCB is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
