York Traditions Bank Gives Back in 2019
With the Holidays quickly approaching, we have so much to celebrate and be thankful for! At the same time, we are also reminded of the many residents in our community who are in need of some extra help with basic needs like food, clothing, school supplies, and more. York Traditions Bank has chosen to support several programs through local organizations during the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. Help us support our local community through Holiday of Hope, Christmas Emergency Fund and collections in Hanover benefiting For the Love of a Veteran.
Holiday of Hope – York Jaycees
Holiday of Hope is a signature project of the York Jaycees. Through a partnership with local service agencies, children from York County are invited to shop for winter clothing, coats, boots, and other necessities. After they shop, they are treated to a breakfast with Santa. This program has supported children in our community for more than 50 years.
How Can I Help? Bring unwrapped new toys (for girls and boys aged newborn to 16 years), monetary donations and non-perishable food items to any of our branches before Wednesday, December 5. Please note, there is a particular need for gifts for children aged 10 years and older.
About the York Jaycees
The York Jaycees is a not-for-profit, leadership training organization that focuses on community service. It’s open to all young men and women, ages 21 to 41, residing in the greater York, Pennsylvania area. They are a chapter of the Pennsylvania Jaycees, the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce and Junior Chamber International (JCI), a global organization.
Christmas Emergency Fund – For the Love of a Veteran
Each holiday season, the York Daily Record offers readers the opportunity to help our community through the Christmas Emergency Fund.
The beneficiary of this year’s fund is For the Love of a Veteran, an organization devoted to supporting veterans and their families. Particularly veterans experiencing homelessness or battling PTSD.
York Traditions Bank has long partnered with YDR in this effort, accepting donations mailed in by readers, accounting for the funds and disbursing them — all free of charge so every penny goes back to the sponsored organization. More information available here.
How Can I Help? Checks can be mailed to: YDR Christmas Emergency Fund C/O York Traditions Bank, 226 Pauline Drive, York, PA 17402-0136.
