GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The First National Bank of Greencastle recently contributed $5,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County.

Michelle Bowen, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County, said the average house built by Habitat in the county costs $73,000.

"We've reached out and asked financial institutions for a minimum contribution of $5,000 in our new community, 'Banking On Our Community,'" Bowen said. "Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County's focus is on a 'hand up, not a handout.'"

"Habitat does so much to provide housing opportunities for people who would not otherwise afford a home of their own," said Jeff Shank, president and CEO of The First National Bank of Greencastle. "We're proud to have our employees involved and we look forward to Habitat's future projects in Franklin County."
