(WHTM) — Mid Penn Bank is donating money to more than a hundred first responder organizations in Pennsylvania.
The bank gave $24,000 through its first responders donation program. This is the latest in a series of donations over the past few years.
“It takes about $7,000 just to equip a firefighter, An average pumper costs $600 to $700,000, and an aerial device you’re looking at over a million dollars just to purchase that, so the donations that the bank provides certainly go a long way,” VP and Manager of Mid Penn Bank Middletown and Steelton, David Martin said.
Mid Penn Bank says it donates more than a million and a half dollars to charity every year.
