FNCB Bank, locally-based for over 100 years, has announced a $7,500 Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to Allied Services in support of the dePaul School for Dyslexia. Since 2010, FNCB has contributed more than $1,400,000 to local educational and scholarship organizations through the EITC initiative.
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 identify his or her own learning style to maximize abilities and cope with chronic difficulties.
“The dedicated staff at the dePaul School for Dyslexia do an incredible job helping children overcome learning disabilities,” said Gerard Champi, FNCB Bank President and CEO. “We are proud to play a small part in the overall success of the program by providing scholarships to deserving students and their families.”
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 Bank is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
