NexTier’s Spotlight of the Month for September is AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION.
NexTier will support the American Heart Association as we have done over the years, with Jeans Day and candy proceeds. Please stop in one of our branches today to support this wonderful organization.
About the American Heart Association
The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest, largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Founded by six cardiologists in 1924, our organization now includes more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters working tirelessly to eliminate these diseases. We fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies and provide lifesaving tools and information to save and improve lives.
Our nationwide organization includes 144 local offices and nearly 2,700 employees. We moved our national headquarters from New York to Dallas in 1975 to be more centrally located. The American Stroke Association was created as a division in 1997 to bring together the organization’s stroke-related activities.
Our Mission: Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Our mission drives everything we do.
What We Do: To improve the lives of all Americans, we provide public health education in a variety of ways.
We’re the nation’s leader in CPR education training. We help people understand the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. We provide science-based treatment guidelines to healthcare professionals to help ensure the best treatment for every patient, every time. We educate lawmakers, policy makers and the public as we advocate for changes to protect and improve the health of our communities.

NexTier Bank is a proud supporter of the Spina Bifida Association of Western PA
The SBAWP was established in 1969 by a group of parents representing the first infant survivors of spina bifida and hydrocephalous in significant number. The parents focused on supporting one another and advocating for quality health care. Since its inception, the association has successfully focused on addressing the needs of individuals living with spina bifida and other related disabilities as they age and progress through life's developmental milestones. Related disabilities include Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury and Asperger's Syndrome all of which include both physical and cognitive disabilities similar to spina bifida.
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.”
