FNB Donates $40K to Virus Relief Efforts in Pa., Ohio

PITTSBURGH, Pa. – F.N.B. Corp. has donated $40,000 to support coronavirus relief funds in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio, adding on to the $1 million already committed to such funds across its seven-state footprint.

The funds will be distributed to the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio, based in Sharon, Pa., and The Erie Community Foundation, in Erie, Pa.

“This donation from F.N.B. Corporation and First National Bank will enable local organizations to assist residents suffering from the physical, mental and financial effects caused by the coronavirus pandemic,” said F.N.B. Corp. President and CEO Vincent J. Delie Jr. in a statement. “FNB is committed to supporting the needs of the communities we serve, especially during this current public health crisis.”

The coronavirus relief funding at the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio are focused on addressing hunger, housing, mental health and access to services, as well as providing support to other programs that do not receive government funding.

The funds provided to The Erie Community Foundation will provide grants to nonprofits aiding Erie County residents affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 31, FNB announced it would provide $1 million through its foundation to local organizations providing aid to communities and businesses in the seven states the bank operates in.
