Shadyside Ribbon Cutting First Step in Campaign to Benefit Food Bank
First National Bank Contributes $1500 to Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank

Pittsburgh, PA – February 2, 2012 – Community leaders, local business owners and representatives from Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank joined First National Bank in celebrating the opening of the Bank’s newest location in Shadyside. Matthew Swider, President of the Board of Directors for Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, was on hand to cut the Bank’s Grand Opening ribbon which held a number of crisp $50 bills. Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, First National Bank donated the bills, totaling $1500, to the Food Bank.

“First National Bank is a consistent supporter of Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank,” notes Swider. “We value their continued example as a community leader in helping the Food Bank and other area organizations meet the needs of our community.” The Food Bank purchases about 40% of the food it distributes, so with its significant bulk purchasing power, $1,500 can be put to immediate use to help feed local struggling families.

John Williams, President of First National Bank of Pennsylvania, explains the Bank’s commitment to Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and other charitable organizations. “As a community bank, First National Bank is focused on strengthening the communities we serve. It’s our privilege to be a part of the Food Bank’s efforts in assisting residents who are in need.”

Susan Milewski, Manager of the Shadyside location, notes that the branch’s efforts to support the Food Bank will continue over the next month. “We have initiated a “Pennies for Peanut Butter” campaign that will benefit the Food Bank. Through March 2, we are encouraging kids and their adult family members and friends to collect pennies and other loose change. We have a coin receptacle and campaign details at our Shadyside branch. This is an easy way for members of the community to support those in need.” In addition to the “Pennies for Peanut Butter” collections, the Shadyside branch of First National Bank will also accept contributions of canned goods and other non-perishables through March 2. All donations will directly benefit Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

First National Bank’s Shadyside branch is located at 800 South Aiken Avenue, at the intersection of Aiken and Walnut Streets.
