NWSB Helping Hands

One thing we know for sure is we are all stronger when we are committed to each other and lend a helping hand. That's why NWSB Bank is proud to launch a special initiative - NWSB Helping Hands. This project was created in response to the COVID-19 crisis, to help our community at this challenging time.

"We’re here for our community. NWSB Helping Hands will provide at least 1,000 meals to those in need while also supporting our local restaurant customers. As a division of ACNB Bank, our employees along with others in our footprint, have raised more than $13,000 in support. Combined with the Bank’s commitment of $40,000, Helping Hands will have a tremendous impact on our shared communities across Maryland and Pennsylvania.”
- Tom N. Rasmussen, ACNB Bank EVP/Maryland Market President.


Helping Local Restaurant Customers and People In Need

Together we provided more than 1,250 meals in Carroll County

Locally owned restaurants make our communities unique and bring joy to many of us. But the COVID-19 pandemic hit the restaurant community hard. That's why NWSB Bank made a core contribution to help local restaurant customers and those in need.

We've partnered with 4 NWSB Bank food service customers to supply meals to 5 community organizations. Together with the other divisions of ACNB Bank, we provided nearly 6,000 meals in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

This is a hard time to be away from family. When our team heard some local seniors were in need of a little cheer, they decided to make and send cards to long-term care facilities. Together we made more than 200 cards and delivered to local facilities and through meal distribution programs.
