The Port­side Arts Cen­ter in Port Rich­mond re­cently re­ceived a $500 dona­tion from North­ern Liber­ties’ Hyper­ion Bank for the cen­ter’s sum­mer arts camp ex­per­i­ence. 

The Sum­mer Arts Camp provides an eight-week daily arts pro­gram for neigh­bor­hood kids, 80 per­cent of whom have lim­ited fin­an­cial re­sources. 

Hyper­ion also donated to State Sen­at­or Christine M. Tartagli­one’s “Stuff the Bus” school sup­plies cam­paign, one that seeks to col­lect school sup­plies dur­ing her an­nu­al Com­munity Day Pic­nic, held in Nor­ris Square Park. Hyper­ion Bank donated $200 to that cam­paign. That dona­tion helped pur­chase school sup­plies for loc­al fam­il­ies, one of which is pic­tured be­low.
