The Great Jim Thorpe's grandson reaches out to our community for support

Dear Philanthropist,

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is John Thorpe, Grandson of Jim Thorpe, the Native American Athlete. Thank you in advance, for taking the time to read this letter.  I am reaching out to you today in an effort, to raise money to supply basketball equipment, and uniforms for Pine Ridge High School Thorpes, of Pine Ridge South Dakota.

As you may, or may not know, Pine Ridge Indian reservation, South Dakota, U.S.A. is one of the most
poverty stricken places on earth, and it's right here in our own backyard. It saddens me deeply to say, the adolescent suicide rate is 4 times the U.S. national average.

One of the things the students of the High School here are proud of, and excited about, are their Thorpes.
They are a highly competitive basketball team, and this year, both the boy’s and girl’s teams have qualified for the Lakota Invitational Basketball tournament held in Rapid City, S.D. December 13th- 16th of this year.

These children need your help. The families of these kids can't afford to purchase the necessary shoes, or uniforms.

Please help to give these children the basic equipment most other children take for granted.
My initial goal is to raise $6000.00. This will supply both the Boys and Girls Basketball teams with shoes and warm-up suits.

The athletic director at Pine Ridge High is Lyle "Dusty" LeBeaux.  He purchases the equipment  through Dakota Sports in Rapid City, S.D. My contact there is Trevor Anderson.

The Pine Ridge Thorpe fund is set up through the Jim Thorpe Neighborhood Bank in Jim Thorpe, PA. 

All funds exceeding our initial goal will be kept in trust at the Jim Thorpe Neighborhood Bank, and applied toward the future needs of the Pine Ridge High School Athletic Department.  Unfortunately, the basketball team is not the only team that needs financial assistance. The children of Pine Ridge High School Athletics and I, cannot thank you enough for helping to make this morally uplifting gift a reality.

To donate please make check or Money Order payable to JTNB fbo Pine Ridge Thorpes and mail to Jim Thorpe Neighborhood Bank,

Attention: Tawny Delich, PO Box 209, Jim Thorpe, PA 18229-0209

The Jim Thorpe Neighborhood Bank recently announced the appointment of Eugene “Gino” DeGiosio to the position of VP of Commercial Lending. JTNB CEO/President, Craig A. Zurn, related that he is excited about the vast experience and opportunities that DeGiosio will be able to bring to the bank. Zurn added that DeGiosio “brings more than 14 years of various managerial and lending experiences to our community Bank." DeGiosio has a BA from East Stroudsburg University and his former careers include SVP/Commercial Lender with Conestoga Bank and VP with PNC Bank managing a team of Business Bankers covering Northeast PA.

DeGiosio stated that he looks forward to working with a true community bank that not only cares about its customers but makes lending decisions locally and not in an office located at a distant city by people who never met the applicant. He added that he looks forward to help in any way he can to increase loan volume and build relationships with many of his local and former Lehigh Valley customers who have become frustrated with the "Big Bank Experience".

New name......same great bank!

Jim Thorpe National Neighborhood Bank

Effective on December 30, 2013, JTNB converted from a national bank charter to a Pennsylvania state chartered bank and a state member bank of the Federal Reserve bank of Philadelphia.

As part of the charter conversion our name changed to the Jim Thorpe Neighborhood Bank.  This will not change the way we do business with our customers.  You can still expect the same friendly personalized service that our employees have always given.

All eligible deposits will remain insured by the FDIC
