Albright LIFE Lycoming has received a $5,000 gift from Fulton Bank to support the programs and services it provides to senior participants. LIFE (Living Independence for the Elderly) is a joint Medicare/Medicaid program which coordinates all healthcare and support services to assist and encourage seniors’ living independently for as long as safely possible.
Participants are transported to the LIFE Center Monday through Friday and can receive therapies, medications, self-care, on-site doctor visits, socialization, and much more.
Fulton Bank has given $16,600 to Albright Care Services over the past 13 years. Leslie Temple, senior vice president of business development at Fulton Bank said, “Our support of Albright LIFE Lycoming is part of our Fulton Forward initiative. This is an opportunity to shape the future across our footprint through efforts and partnerships that align with our company's values and expertise and make our communities better, one change at a time."
"Along with our entire Fulton family, we're proud of the Fulton Forward program and our contributions toward building vibrant communities," Temple continued. "Through gifts of time and dollars and through programs, products, and services, we can foster affordable housing, drive economic development, and promote education and financial literacy in the neighborhoods we serve.”
Temple, who is a member of the Donor Relations & Philanthropy Committee at Albright Care Services, continued, “We fulfill this mission by focusing in four key areas: housing assistance, economic development, financial literacy, and community impact. Albright LIFE Lycoming ensures that their participants maintain a lifestyle that helps them continue a level of independence. Since this is a Medicare/Medicaid program, our investment can be part of our Community Reinvestment Act support to the community.”
The Community Reinvestment Act encourages commercial banks and savings associations to help meet the needs of people in all segments of their communities, including low and moderate income neighborhoods.
