Hezekiah's Hands receives donation
SAYRE, Pa. - Hezekiah's Hands, a mission of area churches that provides home repairs to needy residents of Bradford County, has received a $250 donation from the C&N Trust and Financial Management Group.
The contribution is one of eight the Trust Division made to local charities during the holiday season. Each year the contributions are made to charities within the division's market area in the name of their clients.
Each summer, teams of volunteers from participating churches spend one week working on repairs that make it possible for people to continue living in their homes. Volunteers have built wheelchair ramps, painted, repaired drywall and floors, cleaned kitchens, and done minor plumbing repairs. Additional jobs are completed as needed through the year.
There is no cost to the home owners for labor or supplies. The group holds fund raisers throughout the year to fund the repairs. Applications are processed by the Area Agency on Aging.
The C&N Trust and Financial Management Group, a division of Citizens & Northern Bank, maintains offices in Wellsboro, Sayre, Towanda, Williamsport, Coudersport and Emporium in Pennsylvania and Canisteo in New York. The Division, founded in 1960, provides a wide range of investment, trust and retirement plan services to individuals and organizations.
