PERKASIE (October 2022) – Penn Community Bank, the largest independent mutual bank in eastern Pennsylvania, is pledging $40,000 to United Way of Bucks County in support of the nonprofit’s HELP Center. The contribution will ensure that the Center can continue to meet growing needs in the community.
The HELP Center, a Healthy Eating and Living Partnership, provides essentials like cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items, and home goods – completely free of charge – to local families who are struggling financially. Since opening in March 2020, it has evolved to meet residents’ changing needs.
“The HELP Center has quickly become an essential resource in Bucks County,” said Marissa Christie, President & CEO at United Way of Bucks County. “We serve folks with all sorts of needs – from working families just struggling to get by to survivors of natural disasters. Currently, we’re helping Ukrainian refugees who have arrived here with virtually nothing. None of this would be possible without the support of partners like Penn Community Bank.”
