Honesdale, PA – James O. Donnelly, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wayne Bank, is pleased to announce that the Bank will support the Wayne County YMCA with a donation through the Neighborhood Assistance Program – Special Priorities Program (“NAP-SPP”).
Representatives from the Wayne County YMCA’s Board of Trustees and Board of Directors accepted a check in the amount of $124,500.00 from Mr. Donnelly.
The gift was made possible as a result of the NAP-SPP Tax Credit Program offered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, acting through the Department of Community and Economic Development.
“Wayne Bank is so pleased to contribute to the Wayne County YMCA’s construction project for their new facility,” stated Mr. Donnelly. “The YMCA offers valuable programs that promote healthy living and well-being to our local community, and we are proud to be able to support their mission.”
This contribution will benefit the Wayne County YMCA’s project to construct a brand-new facility, as they have outgrown their current historical building. Wayne Bank’s commitment will enable the YMCA to complete phase I of the project, which includes the development and completion of engineering/design work including preliminary design, site development plans, development plans and approvals, sewage design and permitting, and PennDot/Township approvals for highway access. This initial phase of the project is critically important to set the stage for completion of the remaining phases of the project to include final construction.
