Wayne Bank Donates to Honesdale Communities That Care Inc.

Honesdale, PA – Lew Critelli, President and CEO of Wayne Bank, is pleased to announce the Bank’s donation of $10,000.00 to Honesdale Communities That Care, Inc.— a program that focuses on providing an after-school supervised, safe, social and learning environment for children in Honesdale.

The gift was made possible through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program. The program is under the direction of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and provides tax credits to businesses so that they may make contributions to state-approved organizations, such as Honesdale Communities That Care, Inc. rather than being paid to Harrisburg as state taxes which are distributed statewide.

According to Lew Critelli, “Wayne Bank is pleased that we are able to support our local students and their families through our 2014 donation to Honesdale Communities That Care—in order to provide a safe after-school environment for students at Lakeside Elementary School in Honesdale. The students and teachers sited many benefits of the program during the check presentation and helping the children in our community is of major importance to Wayne Bank as it helps to strengthen our community.”

Wayne Bank is a subsidiary of Norwood Financial Corp, Member FDIC, serving Wayne, Lackawanna, Pike and Monroe counties with 15 Community Offices. The stock trades on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol – NWFL.
