Norwalk, CT - On Thursday, June 11, 2015, representatives of First County Bank, David Van Buskirk, AVP and Business Development Officer and Wendy A. Macedo, AVP and Branch Manager presented a check for $10,000 to the Human Services Council in support of the Norwalk Mentor Program.  Since 2009, First County Bank has been a proud partner and supporter of the Norwalk Mentor Program.  In a statement from Program Director, Nancy Pratt: “Without local organizations like First County, our programs would not be sustainable or have the opportunity to grow.  We are grateful for the support of First County Bank and their generosity”.  Executive Director, Anthony DiLauro said, “For several years, we have been fortunate to have the dedication and commitment of the employees of First County; the funding they provide to this program truly makes a difference to the greater Norwalk community.  We look forward to a continued close relationship for many years to come!  It is really inspiring to work with First County Bank over the years because they care about the community, the quality of their products and services and have helped us with many of our financial needs.” 

The Norwalk Mentor Program was established in 1986 in partnership with Norwalk Public Schools. It was the first school-based mentoring program in the country. As a program of the Human Services Council, we match students in grades K-12 with positive adult role models. We currently have 228 mentor/mentee matches and will continue to grow the program. The more funding we have, the more students can be reached and more lives can be touched.
