First Niagara Bank recently made a $5,000 donation to the Nazareth Area Chamber of Commerce. The money will be used for chamber event sponsorships throughout the year, including the annual dinner dance and the annual clambake.
The donation also will enable the chamber and the bank to make a donation of $750 to the Nazareth Area Food Bank and a $750 donation to The Loaves & Fishes Soup Kitchen.
"I am very pleased that my employer First Niagara Bank has made this generous donation," said Lance Colondo, First Niagara Bank assistant vice president and branch manager. "They, like myself, believe in the importance of giving back to the local community in which we serve."
Colondo added: "Supporting the Nazareth Chamber of Commerce, the Nazareth Area Food Bank and The Loaves & Fishes Soup Kitchen is an opportunity for us to give back and let these organizations know that First Niagara Bank and myself as an active Nazareth Chamber of Commerce Board member are there for them."
The closest First Niagara Bank location -- in relation to Nazareth Borough -- is on Bath Pike (Route 512) in Hanover Township, Northampton County.
