ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) — A local bank is launching a new initiative to help low-income families make improvements within their neighborhoods.
Five Star Bank says it will match every dollar donated to the “Progress in Action” program this year, up to $50,000. The bank will also commit a minimum contribution of $25,000, regardless of community donations.
Funds from the program will support a number of needs that residents identify, like renovation projects, financial literacy workshops, local daycare, and other programs.
The program will launch on May 10 at the Lilac Festival. Five Star Bank will have a booth there with employees to provide information.
