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.

Because We Care Anniversary Gala

November 11, 2017

Reliance Bank is proud to support the Because We Care Anniversary Gala!

The Because We Care Foundation maintains 45 partnerships with police, fire department, EMS, and dispatch in 5 counties across Central PA. The goal of BWC is to give personalized teddy bears to each of these partnerships. First responders give these teddy bears to children they come in contact with during a traumatic time; the bears provide comfort when a child needs it most, as well as foster a positive relationship with first responders.

Over the last 2 years, BWC has been able to reach over 3,000 children. The goal is to raise funds to continue to provide these brave first responderswith the tools to provide a positive early intervention in the lives of children.
