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.

2018 Winter Games Polar Plunge

February 3

Reliance Bank is proud to support Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s 2018 Winter Games Polar Plunge!

The Winter Games Polar Plunge is an event to raise both funds and awareness for Special Olympics Pennsylvania. The mission of Special Olympics Pennsylvania is to provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community. Funds raised from the Plunge support operating costs for the nearly 20,000 athletes that participate in Special Olympics activities across Pennsylvania. All training and competition opportunities are provided free of charge to the athletes and their families.

This year’s Polar Plunge will take place at Canoe Creek State Park. Plungers, as well as spectators, can stroll through Plunge Town, which includes complimentary food, games, music, and more.
