WELLSBORO, PA –Fifty children from Tioga and Bradford Counties will have a brighter holiday, thanks to employees and customers of Citizens & Northern Bank in Wellsboro. Toys and clothing were donated through the bank’s annual “Angel Tree” initiative, which assists Northern Tier Helping Hands provide warm clothing and toys for local families in need. All 50 children represented by the Angel Tree tags will receive gifts.

Employees and customers were asked to remove a tag from the tree. Each tag had a wish list for clothing and toys. Participants shopped for their child and returned the unwrapped gifts to the Wellsboro C&N office, where they were picked up by Northern Tier Helping Hands volunteers for distribution to the children. In addition to the gifts, several monetary contributions were also received for Helping Hands.

“We are so grateful to our employees and customers who helped us meet our goal of helping 50 families,” said Carol Scranton, C&N Wellsboro office customer service representative and Angel Tree coordinator.
