February 26, 2013
Youngstown, OH (02/26/13) – Cortland Banks is teaming up with Second Harvest Food Bank in the month of March to help generate donations of food and funds for those in our Valley who need it most. Throughout the month of March, Cortland Banks’ Mahoning and Trumbull county branches will make a donation for every checking account* opened by a new deposit customer or referred by an existing customer. On behalf of each new customer in the Mahoning Valley who mentions Harvest for Hunger, Cortland Banks will make a $25.00 donation to Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley. The community is also invited to drop off non-perishable food items at any Cortland Banks Branch in the Mahoning Valley during the month of March. For a list of locations and for promotion details, please visit www.cortland-banks.com/harvest.
Cortland Banks is year-round supporter of Second Harvest Food Bank through fundraisers, food collection and volunteer work. Recently on January 9, 2013, Cortland Banks’ employee volunteers visited the food bank, where they helped package boxes of food to be distributed to local families in need. The next volunteer date is set for February 27, 2013, in addition to dates in March.
“As a local bank, we are dedicated to meeting the needs of our community. Partnering with Second Harvest offers a meaningful way to help support our neighbors. We created this program to spread awareness and increase food donations as well as funds. Together, we can help feed the Valley,” said Sara Smith, Assistant Vice President and Marketing Director for Cortland Banks.
“We are grateful for the continued support of Cortland Banks,” said Michael Iberis, executive director of Second Harvest. For every new checking account opened at Cortland Banks during March, the Food Bank will be able to distribute $375 worth of food to hungry people in our community. All funds raised through Cortland Banks’ Harvest for Hunger project will be used to feed hungry people in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties.

These organizations include church pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and shelters for battered women.
