Generations Bank and Menzo Case Recognized by Seneca Falls Police Department

Chief Peenstra presented the award at Seneca Falls Town Board meeting

Menzo Case, Generations President & CEO
Seneca Falls, N.Y. – Generations Bank announced today that on Tuesday September 5, 2017, Bank President & CEO Menzo Case was recognized by the Town of Seneca Falls Police Department.

Chief Stu Peenstra outlined the generosity of Case and the Bank citing specific examples:

  • For 15 years Generations Bank has supported the DARE program in the communities they serve with financial contributions.
  • In 2015, Generations Bank committed to a 5 year donation of $6,700 to purchase materials for all of the students in its footprint – approximately 1,500 5th graders benefit from the DARE (Drug & Alcohol Resistance Education) program each year.
  • In addition, Generations Bank under the leadership of Menzo Case, has underwritten the cost for an Annual New York State DARE Officers Association Training – held for one day in October for all DARE Officers across the state. This year will be the third year for this sponsorship.
  • Further, Generations Bank is committed to the safety of the children in our community and has partnered with the Seneca Falls Police Department to ensure the Safe Child ID cards can still be a service provided by the Police department team. Due to funding restrictions and the loss of a grant, the new equipment needed could not be purchased – that is until Generations Bank made the commitment to purchase the $6,500 of equipment so the service can continue. Without their investment, 700-800 children and families would not be able to have the Safe Child ID Cards this year.

He concluded with “Thank you to Menzo Case, the board of directors and the employees of Generations Bank, for all you do to help make our communities the best places they can be to live, work and be a kid.”
