WEST CHESTER — Last month, the YMCA of Greater Brandywine received a $10,000 donation from its community partner, Susquehanna Bank. This donation will be used to support youth health and fitness programs at the Oscar Lasko Youth Program Center on Chestnut Street in West Chester as well as the Brandywine Y branch in Coatesville. 

The Y and Susquehanna bank have been working together to for the good of the local Chester County community since 2003. This donation from Susquehanna Bank was possible as a result of their ‘Spring Into Action’ campaign held in April and May of 2015.

“We wanted to enforce the message of living a healthy lifestyle and help local nonprofits that carry out that mission every day,” Bank president and CEO Gregory A. Duncan said.

Donations were made by the bank for every social media interaction (like, share, comment, or retweet) on its ‘Spring Into Action’ posts. Employees also contributed personally during April and May by paying to wear jeans on Fridays.

Offices from the YMCA of Greater Brandywine thanked Susquehanna Bank for its continued support of important community programs that promote youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
