Generations Bank announced a donation of $5,200 to support local D.A.R.E. programs, benefiting over 400 students across area schools for the 2024-2025 school year. The donation will fund workbooks, certificates, awards, t-shirts, and other participation materials.

On Monday, May 20, 2024, D.A.R.E. officers from the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, Geneva Police Department, and Seneca Falls Police Department joined Generations Bank executives to receive the funds. The officers will use the donation to purchase essential learning materials for elementary students in Geneva, Romulus, Seneca Falls, South Seneca, and Waterloo.

“Generations has been deeply committed to funding the D.A.R.E. program across our footprint for nearly twenty years. It is imperative that kids learn to make safe and responsible decisions when it comes to drugs and alcohol, and that is what this program is designed to do,” said Derek Dyson, SVP-Chief Information Officer of Generations Bank.

Generations Bank, founded in 1870 and headquartered in Seneca Falls, partners with businesses, municipalities, and residents across the Finger Lakes Region and Western New York to offer banking and financial services. With nine retail locations, Generations serves the community from branches in Seneca Falls, Auburn, Union Springs, Waterloo, Geneva, Phelps, Farmington, and Medina. For more information, visit
