By September 10, 20201 min read

In 2020, New Tripoli Bank increased its employee volunteerism and charitable donations to focus on individuals and families in need and promoting local organizations and events that assist them. Throughout 2020, it has sponsored, volunteered and donated to multiple community organizations.

To start the year, its employees volunteered to bowl for the Big Brothers Big Sisters “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” fundraiser, where the bank served as an event sponsor.

Employees of the bank also attended the 70th Annual Symphony Ball in support of the local arts and donated $3,500 to the Allentown Symphony’s El Sistema program, as well as the Community Music School, both of which provide music education to underprivileged students in the community. 

Additionally, throughout the year, New Tripoli Bank has held weekly food drives in their branches. Through this, it has donated $16,000 to local food pantries in its area.

Finally, New Tripoli Bank is an annual supporter of the Community Action Committee of Lehigh Valley, where last year it donated $7,000. The local nonprofit provides housing, food, and small business assistance to individuals and families in need.
