Susquehanna Bank Donates To TriCounty Community Network’s Build Up Youth Program

Pottstown, Pa. (August 16, 2012) –TriCounty Community Network (TCN), a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health, social and environmental conditions in Western Montgomery, Northern Chester and Eastern Berks counties in Pennsylvania, today announced its Build Up Youth program has received a donation from Susquehanna Bank’s Pottstown Office.

The donation will help support TCN’s Build Up Youth leadership development program for middle school students.  The program includes an annual Youth Leadership Conference and a school-based leadership project.  Through its efforts, the Build Up Youth program focuses on issues ranging from cyber bullying, drug & alcohol awareness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship to safe dating, safe social networking, and protecting the environment.

“With so many negative influences for youth in our society today, our Build Up Youth program is an important initiative to educate these students and teach them the leadership skills to succeed in life,” said Jen Doyle, executive director for TCN.  “We appreciate Susquehanna Bank’s financial contribution to this important program.  We look forward to continuing to grow the program and positively influencing the youth of our area.”

“At Susquehanna Bank, we believe it’s important to invest in the future of our communities, and one of the best ways to do that is to support students,” said Katrina Belcher, Susquehanna Bank Market Manager.  “That’s why we’re proud to contribute to the TriCounty Community Network Build Up Youth Program.”
