The Fidelity Bank D&D Charitable Foundation has made a contribution to Penn State Scranton’s student hardship fund, which aids students who find themselves facing unexpected financial challenges.
Fidelity Bank senior vice president and human resources director Mary McNichols recently presented the $1,000 check to Penn State Scranton director of development, Christine Ostroski at the campus.
“We are extremely thankful to Fidelity Bank for their generosity to the campus and to those students here at Penn State Scranton who find themselves, unexpectedly, in dire need of financial assistance to continue their studies,” Ostroski said. “Their contribution to the Student Hardship Fund will definitely have a positive impact on students who need it the most.”
The Student Hardship Fund at Penn State Scranton was established in 2014. Since then the fund has helped students in need, by assisting students to cover tuition, student fees, books and living expenses.
