Customers Bank supports South Reading Youth Initiative for second consecutive year
Alvernia University’s South Reading Youth Initiative has been awarded $200,000 in annual funding from Customers Bank. The longtime after-school enrichment program managed by the university’s Holleran Center for Community and Global Engagement pairs Alvernia faculty, staff and students with the Reading School District to provide educational enrichment and literacy services to more than 100 elementary students at Millmont and Tyson-Schoener elementary schools every day.
“Customers Bank once again demonstrates its support of Alvernia and our Franciscan mission to serve the underserved in the City of Reading,” said Alvernia President John R. Loyack. “The South Reading Youth Initiative continues to provide a pathway of success for both Reading elementary school students and their Alvernia mentors.”
