EITC donation to benefit cchs envirothon

We would like to Thank Peoples Security Bank and Trust of Scranton, Pa. for their generous donation of $2500.00 to Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities (CCOYA). Peoples Security Bank & Trust is one of the largest independent community banks in eastern Pennsylvania. With a footprint stretching from suburban Philadelphia to Binghamton, New York, Peoples Security Bank now has 26 full-service branches. Peoples Security Bank and Trust is an eligible Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donor. CCOYA is also eligible to receive EITC donations for many of their programs and distributions are made through CCOYA partner, Common Wealth Charitable Management of Montrose, Pa. This donation will be used to purchase materials and resources to enhance the Cameron County High School Envirothon program to better prepare our students that participate in the Pa. Envirothon each year. There are five topic areas of Pa. Envirothon that students learn about each year and are tested on their knowledge. Those topics are Soils and Land use, Forestry, Wildlife, Aquatic Ecology and Current Environmental issues. If anyone knows a EITC eligible donor that would like to make donations to CCOYA, please contact Don Bickford at payouthoutdooredu@windstream.net or Taylor Gillette at taylor.ccoya@windstream.et
