300+ Volunteers. 15 Locations. $100,000 in Giving.
PERKASIE, Pa (May 2022) – Penn Community Bank, the largest independent mutual bank in eastern Pennsylvania, hosted its first-ever Day of Service on Wednesday, May 25. The organization-wide event partnered 300+ bank team members with over a dozen nonprofit partners throughout Bucks Co., Montgomery Co., and the Lehigh Valley to donate over 1,000 employee hours of volunteer service as well as $100,000 in charitable contributions.
“For thousands of neighbors across our markets, the impact of the pandemic added further strain on the challenges they already faced – from finances to food insecurity, housing to mental health. And the nonprofit organizations serving those needs have seen over two years of disruption themselves which has resulted in resource limitations, declining donations, and the curbing of volunteers,” said Jeane M. Vidoni, president and CEO of Penn Community Bank. “For 150 years, Penn Community Bank has always been a catalyst for growth in the communities we serve – whether as financial supporters, dedicated volunteers, or advocates for positive change. Understanding this situation, we wanted to leverage the strengths that have always differentiated us as a powerhouse community bank. This first-ever Day of Services is truly an expression of who we are and what Greater Good Banking is all about.”
