Fox Chase Bank’s customers, employees, and Charitable Foundation are helping disadvantaged children get the sleep they need to be healthier and better prepared for school.
This winter Fox Chase Bank hosted a Sheet and Blanket Drive benefitting OHAAT’s Beds for Kids program. More than 65 sheet sets and 25 blankets were collected from the bank’s 12 locations. All of the donations were packaged as “bed kits” in OHAAT’s sorting room. Every child in OHAAT’s Beds for Kids program receives both a bed and “bed kit” that includes a set of sheets and a blanket, both gender and age appropriate.
In June OHAAT received a $3,000 grant from the Fox Chase Bank Charitable Foundation to purchase beds for the Beds for Kids program. (See above for OHAAT’s Board Chair, Ken Barber, and Executive Director, Becky Sedmak, accepting the check from Fox Chase Bank’s Chief Payments Officer, Kerry Lynch.) OHAAT also continues to receive monetary support from Fox Chase Bank employees through United Way’s Workplace Campaign.
Thank you, Fox Chase Bank, for your continued support!
