Celebrating Black History Month

Posted by Stacie Mastin on Feb 17, 2021 3:47:03 PM

February is a time to come together in celebration of the contributions that Black Americans have made throughout American history and a time to pause and reflect on the ongoing struggle for equality and social justice.

As we take into consideration all that Black History Month represents, I cannot help but think about how timely and appropriate this theme is given all that our country, and specifically our Black neighbors, endured in 2020. While the year has ended, the work for racial justice continues.

And as their partners, we’ve been checking in with them more frequently than usual to let them know we have services that can help them through this difficult time.

COVID-19 has impacted all businesses, and farming – Pennsylvania’s #1 industry - is no exception. I own a farm myself, so I know how tough it is to be profitable even in good times.  But the pandemic has added to the many difficulties farmers always face, especially during Spring - their most active season.  That’s why I and my colleague, Lynette Gelsinger, an agricultural relationship manager also a farm owner, are in constant communication with our customers to offer support.
