NeighborWorks Northeastern Pennsylvania (NeighborWorks) recently accepted a donation from Community Bank, N.A., in the amount of $10,000. The donation will benefit the organization through the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development’s Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP).

The Neighborhood Assistance Program focuses on homebuyer education and foreclosure prevention, helping to strengthen neighborhoods in our community through sustainable home ownership. The program gives businesses up to a 55 percent tax credit if they support programs that serve distressed areas and, in the case of NeighborWorks, advance the cause of affordable housing.

“Community Bank is proud to work with our friends at NeighborWorks to support this important program,” said Alison Zurawski, Community Relations Manager at Community Bank, N.A. “Contributing through the Neighborhood Assistance Program is a wonderful way for us to help improve the lives of our neighbors and to give back to this great community.”

NeighborWorks is always grateful for its faithful NAP partners and newcomers to the program because the funds are crucial to our continuing efforts to serve the underserved in the local community.

“We are thankful to our good friends at Community Bank, N.A., for this very generous donation in support of our Neighborhood Assistance Program,” Jesse Erogtt, NeighborWorks Northeastern Pennsylvania President & CEO, said of the donation. “Their support of our efforts is much appreciated and will be of great help in our work to empower new and existing homeowners. We look forward to an ongoing partnership.”
