EITC and Orrstown Bank

Jason Hornberger (left) of Orrstown Bank visited the BBBS office this morning to deliver a $5,000 check as part of PA’s EITC (Education Improvement Tax Credit) program. Our great appreciation to Orrstown Bank for supporting our SMART (Students & Mentors Achieving Results Together) program activities at Conrad Weiser, Oley Valley, and Hamburg School Districts.

The EITC program is a way for approved companies to support agencies like Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County.  EITC-approved companies can donate a portion of some of the state taxes to EITC-eligible agencies.  BBBS of Berks has been an EITC-eligible agency since 2006.  Companies wanting more information on the EITC program or on our agency’s participation can contact Executive Director Jim Smith at JimS@BigsInBerks.org.
