The Way Station Receives Donation from Premier Bank

Youngstown, OH  (February 23, 2023) – Premier Bank recently donated $10,000 to The Way Station. The funds will be used to help the local non-profit assist families who have been impacted by the East Palestine train derailment.

“The Way Station has responded to the crisis in East Palestine by providing food, clothing, water, hygiene products, diapers, cleaning supplies and gift cards to those in need,” explained Chaney Nezbeth, Executive Director, The Way Station. “We do not anticipate their need to end anytime soon, but it will begin to change over time. Because of community support and outreach from our partners like Premier Bank, we will be able to continue to provide what they need, when they need it.”

 “As a community bank proudly located in East Palestine, our local leadership easily identified the need and quickly directed our support to The Way Station serving the residents within the community we call home,” said Josh Toot, Mahoning Valley Market President, Premier Bank. “We are working to do our part to help by mobilizing the resources of our Foundation in the East Palestine community to support our customers, employees and the community during this time. We are hopeful that these funds will help make an immediate and meaningful impact for the village residents and those involved.”

“Premier Bank has a deep commitment to serving our clients and communities. As we continue to grow, so does the impact we have on our communities,” added Gary Small, President & CEO, Premier Bank. “Our commitment to providing excellence in service extends beyond banking. It includes giving back to the communities in which we live and work, striving to make a difference each and every day.”
