Community ImpactFirst Keystone Community Bank in the community.
We are a community-focused financial institution that has been owned and operated by local men and women since 1864. As a local community bank, we are committed to being a vital part of the communities we serve and are proud of the work we do. When we all work together, our neighborhoods and businesses thrive. From corporate donations, volunteerism, local fundraisers, sporting events, street fairs and educational seminars,
we are committed to providing resources that help support and build vibrant and
healthy neighborhoods to benefit the future of our communities.
We are proud to say volunteerism is very important to our employees. Each year, our employees volunteer hundreds of hours to help local non-profit organizations succeed in their missions. Some of the organizations and initiatives supported: United Way, Salvation Army, YMCA, Girls on the Run, ALS Foundation, The Good Samaritan Mission, local Chamber of Commerce Chapters, Kiwanis Club, Rotary Club, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, local food banks and churches, working to help single mothers through S.M.I.L.E, taking service dogs to local hospitals, children’s sporting teams, veterans’ groups, local parade committees and local fire departments. Our employees are making a difference every day!
Every Friday in 2022 our employees donated money through denim days which in turn was distributed to local non-profits and charities. We are proud to say that throughout the year, our employees donated $9,557.00 to local community efforts.
