A Tradition of Giving – 2023


Traditions Bank Gives Back in 2023

During the holiday season, we are reminded of our many blessings and all we have to be thankful for. At the same time, we are also aware of the many residents in our community who need help with food, clothing, school supplies, and more.

Please consider joining us as we give back to these organizations in the communities we serve.


Benefitting York Area Children – Community Progress Council

Each year, the children enrolled in CPC’s early childhood programs receive holiday cheer through the partnership with local individuals and organizations. Please consider supporting their program through the purchase of a gift for one of their families and bringing a little joy to their homes this year. Please note the deadline to order online or drop off items is December 1, 2023. This deadline allows for wrapping and distributing during the holidays. Monetary donations are accepted as well.

About Children’s Aid Society

Children’s Aid Society (CAS) began in 1913 as a mission of the Southern Pennsylvania District Church of the Brethren. The original mission was to aid abandoned, orphaned, and displaced children, and CAS sheltered children in foster families and at the children’s home in Carlisle for more than 40 years. For over 30 years and today, their mission has been to empower children and their families to build stronger, healthier lives. They envision a world where all children are safe and feel loved.
