The Neffs National Bank awarded Inspire Award in recognition of assisting community with PPP Loans


Neffs, Pa- On Monday July 19th The Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers (PACB), held its Annual Inspire & Lifetime Achievement Awards Gala & Banquet at The Hershey Lodge & Convention Center. The Neffs National Bank was awarded the Inspire Award and recognized for the work done in the community to assist business owners with the Paycheck Protection Program.

When the Treasury unveiled the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), The Neffs National Bank was not an active SBA lender, but knew that as a community bank this program would support its customers and the local community. A team effort between departments and headed by the Commercial Lending Team, the PPP program was presented to customers as a way to save their businesses and keep employees on the payroll and supported during the COVID pandemic. While many other banks had complicated application processes The Neffs National Bank was there for customers during this confusing and frustrating time by offering assistance and step by step navigating through the complex program. While COVID presented challenges to face-to-face meetings The Neffs National Bank continued to focus on delivering excellent support and service to customers. Over 370 loans were granted to community businesses. One of these companies was a community pharmacy who used the PPP loan to keep their associates on payroll and a few months later provide much needed COVID vaccines in our community.

The Neffs National Bank is an independent community bank; we live here, we work here, and we’re here to support our local community.
