Susquehanna Bank and its employees have donated $24,514 to aid relief efforts following the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma.
Employees at the bank and its parent company, Susquehanna Bancshares, Inc., participated in a “Casual for a Cause” day, with each employee donating $5 in order to wear jeans to work on Friday. Employee donations totaled $12,257, and the company matched that for a total donation of $24,514.
“Our employees regularly dedicate their time, energy and donations to support their neighbors in the local communities we serve,” said Susquehanna Bancshares Chief Executive Officer William J. Reuter. “With this effort, they’re reaching out to another community in a time of need. We are fortunate to have such a generous team of coworkers!”
With the support of the United Way of Lancaster County, the contribution is being sent to the United Way of Central Oklahoma, which has established a May Tornadoes Relief Fund.
