Bank-at-work program enables new account holders to donate to one of five area nonprofits
PERKASIE, Pa. (February 13, 2019) – Penn Community Bank, the area’s leading independent, mutual financial organization, is proud to announce the 2018 donation total for its Workplace Connections program and the new nonprofit partners that will receive contributions from the program for 2019.
Workplace Connections is a bank-at-work program that brings benefits, including free financial literacy workshops, to area employers and their employees. For every new checking account opened through Workplace Connections, Penn Community Bank will donate $10 on behalf of the account owner to one of five rotating local organizations.
In 2018, Workplace Connections generated $8,750 in donations for Aldie Counseling Center; the James A. Michener Art Museum; Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA); Penn Foundation; and the United Way of Bucks County.
For 2019, Penn Community Bank is partnering with Youth Orchestra of Bucks County; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County; Ann Silverman Community Health Clinic; Rolling Harvest Food Rescue; and Family Service Association Homeless Shelter.
“We are sincerely grateful to partner with Penn Community Bank and their customers as part of the 2019 Workplace Connections ‘Giving Back Matters’ program,” said Sally Fabian-Oresic, Executive Director of the Ann Silverman Community Health Clinic. “The clinic’s mission is to provide free medical care, dental care and social services for low-income, uninsured members of our community. The work of the clinic is made possible through the dedicated efforts of our volunteer doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, dentists, dental assistants and hygienists as well as the funds donated by community organizations like Penn Community Bank, which has developed this unique initiative to directly support our efforts to serve those who need it the most.”
Since the program’s launch in 2017, Penn Community Bank has donated nearly $14,000 to area nonprofits through Workplace Connections.
