Premier Bank Pledges $100K to Akron Area YMCAYoungstown, OH (August 24, 2023) – Premier Bank has pledged $100,000 to the Akron Area YMCA. The funds will be used to support the organization’s Safety Around Water (SAW) program. SAW is a program designed to give children access to life saving water skills for those who otherwise would not have the opportunity.
“We are fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with organizations like Premier Bank that support us in our mission to provide life-saving skills to individuals in our community.” explained Brian Bidlingmyer, Chief Development Officer, Akron Area YMCA. “Transportation, cost or living in a household where adults don't know how to swim are the three biggest obstacles for many. This program helps to eliminate those obstacles.”
“We are proud to support the Akron Area YMCA and their Safety Around Water program. This program provides invaluable resources to the individuals in the Akron community.” said Trish Gelsomino, Foundation Giving Coordinator, Premier Bank. “Together we can spread kindness and make our community stronger!”
