Susquehanna Bank donates to JBVL through program

PHOTO PROVIDED Barbara McGary, executive director of the James V. Brown Library, and Michael R. Loeh, assistant vice president and commercial relationship manager at Susquehanna Community Bank, hold a check of a $1,000 contribution from Susquehanna Community Bank under the Pennsylvania State Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.

The James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., recently received a $1,000 donation from Susquehanna Community Bank, 2409 E. Third St., as part of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program.

The EITC program, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, provides tax credits to eligible companies that do business in the state when they contribute to scholarship organizations, educational improvement organizations and-or pre-kindergarten scholarship organizations. The tax credits allow companies to reinvest those dollars directly back to local communities.

Most importantly, the program helps to improve Pennsylvania’s education system for students and families. The James V. Brown Library is an approved Educational Improvement Organization (EIO) by the PA DCED.

The funds will be used to support the educational programs offered at the James V. Brown Library such as Digital Arts Camp; Teen Comic and Manga Club; Boom, Fizz, POP! (STEM programming); I Spy Photography; and the Summer Learning Program.
