Generations Bank Announces Continued 3 County, 5 Year Commitment to DARE Program
1,600 students will benefit across area schools
Seneca Falls, N.Y. – Generations Bank announced today that it has continued its pledge to purchase key materials for the DARE program for 1,600 students in the 2016/2017 school year for the second year of a 5 year commitment until 2020.
On Monday, August 15, 2016, DARE Officers from Cayuga, Seneca and Ontario counties joined bank officials and representatives from the New York State DARE Officers Association to pick up materials for the 2016/2017 school year.
Representatives from Auburn Police Department, Geneva Police Department, Seneca County Sheriff’s Department and the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office were present to pick up the materials needed to bring the program the children in their communities. Elementary students in Auburn, Clifton Springs, Geneva, Phelps, Romulus, Seneca Falls, South Seneca and Waterloo will receive the materials.
“Generations Bank is deeply committed to the communities in which we serve and actively seek out opportunities to support children and families. We see DARE as a natural partner for the bank with their programs that focus on kids and their personal safety”, noted Menzo Case, President of Generations Bank. “DARE is a perfect match since its ‘keepin’ it Real’ curriculum teaches and develops the social and emotional skills kids need to make safe and responsible decisions.”
Later this fall, the Bank is the sponsor for a returning regional training seminar for DARE being held by the New York State DARE Officers Association and the New York State Sheriffs’ Association entitled ‘You Can’t STOP What You Don’t Know’ presented by nationally recognized speaker Officer Jermaine Galloway. The seminar is being held at the Holiday Inn Waterloo/Seneca Falls in October.
