NexTier's Non Profit Spotlight of the Month for December is Caring Angels sponsored by BHS Foundation! We will be selling the chocolate angels for the month of December.
The Caring Angel Program
$1 Million and Counting
Celebrating its 22nd year, the Caring Angel Program raises money to help provide emergency room care to children whose parents or guardians do not have insurance or the resources to pay.
The program also helps families and children in need through educational, therapeutic and support services at BHS Family Services and supports the BHS Recovery Project - a support group for recovering young addicts.

Check Presentation to Woodlands
As part of NexTier’s ongoing commitment to serve others in our community, we were proud
to present The Woodlands a donation of $10,000.00. Karen Bracket (Preferred Corporate
Services) and Gary Norris (Commerical Lending) were on hand to present the check.
On April 19 and April 20, the Butler County Humane Society visited 3 NexTier Branches as part of NexTier's Non Profit Spotlight of the Month for April – Morgan Center, Moraine and Cranberry.
The BCHS visits went well which started at Morgan Center Friday afternoon, along with Sonny’s Hot Dog Cart serving lunch outside the branch. Then on to Moraine for late afternoon. Radio station WISR was at both branches and interviewed Carol Achezinski. Clara’s Collars (a local business) and chocolate covered pretzels were also sold during this time with all proceeds going to the Butler County Humane Society.
Saturday the BCHS was on to Cranberry. It was reported a few customers were interested in adopting an animal. Customers made donations. Clara’s Collars and chocolate covered pretzels were sold. Cranberry had children color animal pictures and dog treats were given to customers to take home to their own pets.
“As a ‘hometown’ bank, NexTier has really taken Butler County Humane Society’s needs and challenges into account. We have a small staff, and an even smaller administrative staff. When presented with a fundraising goal challenge from one of our donors, NexTier introduced us to their Lock Box donation system, which allows the donations to go directly to NexTier. NexTier would enter and deposit the funds right into our account. NexTier saved us hours of data entry and allowed our front desk team to concentrate on our mission of helping animals find new homes. NexTier continues to partner with us on ways to save time and money, and are a valuable networking resource as well.”
