F&M Trust Donations Reach $200,000

Covid Relief Donations

F&M Trust has continued the effort that they put forth last year. They have generously provided donations towards COVID relief to community organizations across South Central Pennsylvania.

Recipients of these funds have included first responders, food pantries, homeless shelters, school backpack programs, and senior-living facilities.
