“Crime against the elderly in our society is a growing concern but can be reduced and prevented through programs like these. AmeriServ believes in this worthwhile cause and is proud to partner with Crimestoppers and CRA Partners to provide funding to non-profit organizations when possible. We share similar missions and goals with both organizations. We want to help provide better life experiences for their residents. We’re a community bank and we have vested interest in the safety of our neighbors,” said Mitch Edwards, Vice President and Commercial Relationship Manager for AmeriServ.
“At Esquire Bank, we value the opportunity to be an integral part of the communities we serve,” said Andrew C. Sagliocca, the president and chief executive officer of Esquire Bank. “Any crime against seniors is particularly devastating.”
“We support the Senior Crimestoppers program because it is the right thing to do,” stated Mike Schrage, Centier Bank President & CEO. “Empowering senior living residents through education, awareness, and resources makes a statement that crime against the elderly will not be tolerated. We have supported this program in other communities where Centier Bank has a presence and are honored to support the residents of Oasis at 30th.”
“Berkshire Bank is pleased to join CRA Partners and have the opportunity to support Senior Crimestoppers,” said Erin Boggan, Vice President CRA Officer for Berkshire Bank. “We want all members of our communities to feel safe, and the partnership with Senior Crimestoppers allows added security to the seniors in our service area.”
“We are excited to be participating in an initiative as important as Senior Crimestoppers,” said Keith Mestrich, Chief Executive Officer of Amalgamated Bank. “Senior citizens are a vital part of our communities, and it’s necessary that we ensure their safety and wellbeing. The Senior Crimestoppers program goes great lengths in achieving that.”
Tim Zimmerman, President and CEO of Standard Bank, adds “As a community bank, Standard Bank makes it a point to touch lives in the communities we serve. Senior Crimestoppers is just one more way we’re able to help local families. We’re honored to be able to bring this program to the Allegany Health Nursing and Rehab and look forward to a long-term relationship with them!”
Bill Loving, President & CEO of Pendleton Community Bank said, “It has been said many times that dreams can come true. We are happy to have the opportunity to partner with Pendleton Manor and it is our desire that this contribution can in fact make a dream come true.”

Regal Bank’s commitment to making a difference extends beyond our customers, positively impacting all of the people who reside in our wonderful community,” said Thomas Lupo, president and CEO of Regal Bank.
This program is another way the bank can support the community it serves. “Our seniors can often become victims of crime because they’re vulnerable, and that includes being taken advantage of financially,” Landmark Community Bank President and CEO Jake Farrell said. “The Senior Crimestoppers program is designed to shield residents from those who wish to do them harm, and we are proud to play a small role in their great work.”
Lance Diehl, First Columbia President & CEO says, “As a bank, we know firsthand the importance of ensuring the safety of consumers’ money and valuables. The physical lockboxes for Grandview will certainly enhance security; however, the power of education and information cannot be understated. Helping seniors know what to be on the lookout for in terms of scams and wrongdoing is essential and can stop potential crime before it occurs.” Michele Boone, NHA at Grandview, adds, “We are so grateful to be a part of a small town community where helping others is important and evident through First Columbia Bank reaching out to offer us this opportunity to better serve our residents.”
