Northwest Donates to CASA of Warren, Forest Counties

Kimberly Johnson, corporate AVP, Online and Mobile Banking manager of Northwest Savings Bank, presented a check for $5,000 from the Northwest Charitable Foundation to Lisa Thompson, director of CASA of Warren and Forest Counties on Monday, September 16th. Ms. Johnson is a member of CASA’s board of directors.

In June 2012, the Northwest Charitable Foundation approved a grant to CASA in the amount of $25,000 to be given in $5,000 increments over a five-year period. The check presented this year marked the second donation as part of this grant.

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.

Northwest Savings Bank operates 166 community banking offices in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and Maryland. Founded in 1896, Northwest is a full-service financial institution offering a complete line of personal and business banking products including employee benefits, investment management services, insurance and trust. Northwest Bancshares, Inc. is the holding company for Northwest and is listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market as NWBI. More information about Northwest can be found online at
