At ENB, we not only want our customers to feel the difference, we are also committed to making a difference and giving back to the communities in which we live and work. For more than 140 years, we’ve strived to enrich the lives of our neighbors to help them grow and prosper. By investing in our communities, we are better positioned to serve our customers, create opportunities for our colleagues and provide value to our shareholders. We’ve made innumerable gifts to non-profit and local organizations in the form of financial contributions, small business loans, community development loans and investments, and educational scholarships but our commitment extends far beyond financial support. ENB team members lend their personal time and talent to support more than 22 organizations in our communities as volunteers, finance instructors, coaches, Board Members and more.
Our Team Making a Difference!
Chad Neiss has taken his love for his late son Chad II, and his passion for ice hockey, and established a scholarship fund to help young ice hockey players afford a sport that can be economically challenging for some families. The Chad Neiss II Memorial Scholarship Fund, in conjunction with the Lancaster Ice Rink, distributes scholarship monies to help young players with equipment, travel, and other related expenses.
As a small business relationship manager for ENB, Forrest Borod is motivated by the opportunities he has to help his customers. Whether it’s saving them hundreds of dollars a month by consolidating their debt, getting them into their dream home, or helping them realize they can retire five years earlier than they thought, his knowledge and guidance is making an impact on their financial wellbeing.
