Peoples Security Bank & Trust proudly supports Allied Services dePaul School for Dyslexia

For the third consecutive year, Peoples Security Bank & Trust committed over one million dollars as part of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program. The donations are administered through Commonwealth Charitable Management and are used to award scholarships and grants to numerous schools, colleges and organizations within the bank’s market area. During 2019, over 650 scholarships were issued to 36 local schools. Grants were also awarded to 41 organizations and school districts in support of Educational Improvement Projects. Peoples Security Bank funded the program costs of the EverFi Financial Literacy Program that is currently offered to 20 local high schools.

Allied Services dePaul School for Dyslexia was the recipient of $25,000 in direct scholarship support from Peoples Security Bank. The dePaul School is located on Allied Services main campus in Scranton. Founded in 1978, the dePaul School is a full-time school serving students grades 1 through 8. Currently, the school serves students from 23 school districts in Northeastern Pennsylvania who have been diagnosed dyslexia or a learning difficulty such as attention deficit disorder, reading, writing or spelling disorders. Class sizes are small (a seven-to one student-teacher ratio) and teachers utilize a methodology that identifies each student’s learning style.
