In the Community

For 75 years, Reliance Bank has been synonymous with Community Service. From the early days of Ardie Dillen, Bruce Hostler, and Tim Sissler to the current guidance of Denny Doll, the employees have been instilled with the thought that we are indeed employees of Reliance Bank, and that comes with being community servant leaders.

The employees of Reliance Bank have embraced the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. This project consumes over 125 hours of volunteer time each year. Our employees work tirelessly to raise funds for Relay. They do this because they know their part, no matter how big or how small, is supporting such an outstanding event. For 20 years, our support has grown and so has the enthusiasm from the employees and their families. We have raised over $350,000 for Relay for Life in that timeframe, which includes a match of funds by Reliance Bank’s Foundation.

Aside from Relay for Life, Reliance Bank employees have connections with most non-profit organizations in our trade area including the local Chambers of Commerce, Lions Clubs, Operation Our Town, and much more. We provide funding, leadership, and hands-on help to groups throughout our market area on a regular basis.

October 14, 2017

Reliance Bank proudly supports the Centre Region Down Syndrome Society’s 2017 Buddy Walk!

The mission of CRDSS is to provide information, support, and advocacy for individuals with Down syndrome and their families in the Centre County area. They also seek to provide information and education to local healthcare professionals, educators, businesspeople, and the community at large so as to increase understanding and awareness that will enhance the lives of individuals with Down syndrome.

The Buddy Walk is usually a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate; this year’s walk will be held at Mt. Nittany Middle School. It is an inspirational event celebrating the many abilities and accomplishments of people with Down syndrome. Last year alone, the Buddy Walk raised almost $13 million.
