Scranton, PA (June 10, 2016) – NBT Bank recently made a contribution to NeighborWorks® Northeastern Pennsylvania (NWNEPA) to be used for the organization’s neighborhood redevelopment initiatives. The bank donated its remaining loan shares in NWNEPA’s Home Loan Lender’s Consortium back to NWNEPA—valued at over $97,000—for use in future projects that support the organization’s efforts to provide meaningful and effective homeownership services for families throughout the City of Scranton, Lackawanna County and Northeastern Pennsylvania.
