OC Trust supports Big Brothers Big Sisters

Orange County Trust recently held a special ‘dress-down day’ for employees in an effort to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County to help the agency’s 1-to-1 mentoring program.
NEWBURGH – Through a special dress-down day for employees, Orange County Trust raised over $450 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County - a generous boost to the agency’s 1-to-1 school-based mentoring program just starting up again for the year.

“At Orange County Trust we see our ‘Casual Day’ donations to BBBS helping to benefit local children and communities in two ways”, said Mike DiSalvo, the bank’s Vice President of Commercial Loans – and ‘Big Brother’ mentor for the past 6 years. “One is to model to local children the value of community and service, and secondly, to help local children see a new possibility for their own future.”

Independent national research shows that children who are mentored are more likely to achieve academic success, avoid violent or illegal behavior, have stronger relationships and better confidence, and give back to their community. Bringing the caring guidance and support of an adult mentor into the life of a child can change lives for the better, forever.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County is grateful for the continued support of Orange County Trust – and other partnerships with local businesses, and community members - over the past 35 years of service in Orange County. We rely on these relationships to help keep our programs growing and going strong. For more information about how you can get involved, visit or call (845) 562-5900 x32.
