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.

Elves’ Gift Shop

December 2, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Reliance Bank is pleased to support the Junior Woman’s Club of State College Elves’ Gift Shop event!

The annual Elves’ Gift Shop is a long-standing tradition among area families; children are given the opportunity to buy reasonably priced gifts and crafts with the help of Girl Scout “elves.” All proceeds raised from this year’s event will go toward the Childbirth Education Association.

The Junior Woman’s Club of State College is a community service organization for women of all ages that focuses on doing good work throughout the Centre Region. Every two years, JWC selects a primary fundraising recipient. The primary recipient for 2017-2018 is the Childbirth Education Assocation. The Childbirth Education Association is a non-profit, volunteer organization founded to make pregnancy, birth, delivery, and parenthood a more informed and satisfying experience.

This year’s Elves’ Gift Shop will be held at Park Forest Middle School in State College. For more information, or to volunteer at the Elves’ Gift Shop, please contact Louwana Oliva at (814) 360-5554 or at
