Pennsylvania’s Community Banks are banking on community in hometowns across the Commonwealth. In our ongoing documentary series, we share stories about how community banks serve their communities and help to ensure their hometowns not only survive, but thrive.
Part 5 of PACB’s “Bank on Community” series visits Mercer County State Bank in Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania. MCSB strives to make customer dreams come true. Whether through business loans, sponsoring community events and organizations, or having their employees treat customers like family, it’s their passion for community that helps them stand out from the crowd.
“Throughout the communities we serve, we’ve got baseball coaches and sport coaches and people in the schools helping out tutoring and reading at different times. So, I think that’s what it means. You’re not just saying you’re community. You’re not just making a splash with a big donation and getting your name out there because you gave $100,000. You’re actually there.” – Scott Patton, President & CEO, Mercer County State Bank
