Nationwide, over 15 million children do not have the funds needed to purchase supplies to start the school year¹. 1ST SUMMIT BANK intends to change that for some of the kids in our communities.

Many students and parents now have the extra expense of computers and internet in addition to regular necessities like pens, paper, and notebooks. Many simply cannot afford it. 1ST SUMMIT BANK is stepping in to help these students by collecting the items that a child needs to start off the school year right.  

 

Join us in our school supplies drive to collect the necessary materials for these young learners to have a successful scholastic year. You may drop off new supplies or make a monetary donation at any Community Office in our five-county service area.  

 

The Bank is proudly committed to the communities in which it serves and recognizes the importance of education for our children.
