February 14, 2017 - Representatives of First Keystone Community Bank recently presented a check for $3,000 to King’s College officials.  The donation is through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program.

A portion of the funds will be used to assist lower-income families with tuition costs for the King’s College Early Learning Center, which operates from O’Hara Hall on campus.  Another portion will be used to fund the summer residential program of the McGowan Hispanic Outreach Program at King’s.  The residential program is a three-week enrichment program for 15 to 20 rising junior and senior Latino high school students.
