Premier Bank Donates $30K to United Way of Trumbull County
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Premier Bank recently presented a $30,000 check to the United Way of Trumbull County.
The organization will use $20,000 to support its 100th anniversary celebration events throughout the year, and $10,000 will be used for the 2023 United Way Campaign for the Reading Great by 8 program and the Trumbull County Partnership for Financial Empowerment program.
“We are grateful for support from our community partners like Premier Bank as we celebrate 100 years of creating positive change in Trumbull County,” said Christine Cope, president and CEO of the United Way of Trumbull County. “Because of the bank’s generosity, we are able to continue offering community programs such as Reading Great by 8 and the Trumbull County Partnership for Financial Education.”
The Reading Great by 8 program is designed to increase the number of Trumbull County children reading at grade level by third grade, with an emphasis on children from low- to moderate-income families. The Trumbull County Partnership for Financial Empowerment initiative offers basic financial education to give those in need guidance in better managing resources.
“We are so proud to support the United Way of Trumbull County as they work to inspire and build a community where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential,” said Trish Gelsomino, foundation giving coordinator at Premier Bank. “Together, we can spread kindness and make Trumbull County stronger.”
