F.N.B. Corp. donates to COVID-19 relief efforts
HARRISBURG — F.N.B. Corp., parent company of First National Bank, on Friday announced a $50,000 donation in support of COVID-19 relief efforts across central Pennsylvania.
The donation is part of FNB’s previously announced $1 million financial commitment to support coronavirus relief efforts across its seven-state footprint, and was disbursed by the FNB Foundation.
“This donation will go directly toward helping vulnerable Pennsylvanians impacted by the global health crisis,” said Vincent J. Delie Jr., chairman, president and CEO of F.N.B. Corp. and First National Bank, in a statement. “F.N.B. Corporation and First National Bank remain committed to supporting residents across central Pennsylvania and the entire state through our COVID-19 relief programs, financial assistance and volunteer activities.”
The donation will be split evenly between two organizations — The Centre Foundation COVID-19 ACTION Fund and Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.
In response to the economic impact caused by COVID-19, Centre County community and business leaders formed the ACTION Fund to provide operational and programmatic support to local nonprofits.
The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s mission is to fight hunger, improve lives and strengthen communities across 27 counties in the central part of the state. Experiencing a 35% increase in food requests caused by the pandemic, the Food Bank is working to distribute more than 2 million pounds of food per day to those in need.
FNB’s donations to The Centre Foundation COVID-19 ACTION Fund and Central Pennsylvania Food Bank are one element of its commitment to coronavirus relief efforts across the regions it serves.
In addition to its financial contributions, FNB is supporting its employees, customers and communities by implementing additional financial relief programs to assist businesses and customers, administering comprehensive health and safety measures and allocating up to $1 million in special relief payments to frontline and operations employees.
