HONESDALE — Funds are raised each year at HNB's Annual Employee Party for non-profit or other humanitarian efforts benefitting children.

With some seed money from the bank, each branch and department creates a themed basket displayed at the party.

The Wayne-Pike Shrine Club & Children's Hospital, Make-A-Wish and St. Jude's Children's Hospital are a few who have benefitted from recent gatherings.

The baskets at the Jan. 12 party raised $2,338 for Sandy Hook Elementary School Support Fund.

This fund does not have administrative fees, so 100 percent of the funds received will assist the victims.
