QNB Bank has announced a $10,000 donation to support Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County’s latest project to rehabilitate a home in Quakertown for a local family in need.

Second Harvest provides food to 200 nonprofit member agencies, which include emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and child care and rehabilitation centers.
Jaflo partners with KDG’s IT support team
Jaflo, a Lehigh Valley based tree service company since the 1960s, recently partnered with KDG’s small business IT support team. The KDG team has helped Jaflo manage its IT systems by first conducting a thorough audit of the company’s devices and networks. After the audit, KDG’s next action was to migrate Jaflo to the cloud for increased security, as well as access to the latest software.
The company also gave Jaflo’s devices an upgrade. Old laptops and PCs gave way to new devices so that technical problems associated with outdated systems could be eliminated. Finally, enhanced security was put in place, including strengthened passwords and new anti virus and malware protection on every device.
