Jason Hornberger of Orrstown Bank stopped by the agency this morning, presenting a check to Casework Manager Shae-Lynn Harris. The check — in the amount of $5,000 — helps fund our SMART (Students & Mentors Achieving Results Together) programs at Conrad Weiser, Hamburg Area, and Oley Valley School Districts through the PA Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. This is the fourth consecutive year (since 2020) that Orrstown Bank has provided the funding.
Last month, Truist continued its long-standing support (since 2016) with an EITC check in the amount of $2,500. These are the first two EITC checks of the year.
Pennsylvania’s EITC program allows approved companies to donate a portion of their state taxes to EITC-eligible non-profits. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County has been an EITC-approved agency since 2006.
