Bucks County’s leading Independent bank sponsors 2018 Emergency Homeless Shelter Benefit and Drive For Youth golf outing
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (April 2018) – Penn Community Bank, Bucks County’s leading independent, mutual bank, is proud to present Family Service Association of Bucks County with a $25,000 donation to help sponsor two of the organization’s signature fundraisers that help provide vital programs and services to Bucks County families.
Of the total donation, $10,000 will help sponsor Family Service’s 2018 Emergency Homeless Shelter Benefit. Held this year on April 14 in Doylestown, the annual gala raises funds that are used to help Bucks County residents move from homelessness toward independence. The remaining $15,000 donation will help sponsor the 2018 Drive for Youth, a golf outing that raises money to fund programs that directly benefit Bucks County children and families.
“We are proud to support the work that Family Service performs in our community to help many of our neighbors who face the challenges of food insecurity, unemployment, substance use disorders, homelessness, and more,” said Penn Community Bank Chief Relationship Officer Todd R. Hurley. “Sponsoring Family Service is one way we can help ensure that they can continue their efforts to improve the lives of thousands of Bucks County residents.”
Since 1953, Family Service Association of Bucks County has been helping individuals and families overcome a broad range of challenges, including homelessness. In addition to operating the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter in Levittown for those who have lost safe and stable housing, the nonprofit organization offers a wide variety of programs that strengthen families, prevent suicide, treat mental health and substance use disorders, protect seniors, prepare children and adolescents for the future, and improve the quality of life for those living with HIV/AIDS.
In 2017, Family Service recognized Penn Community Bank’s consistent commitment to supporting its work by naming the bank its Corporate Citizen of the Year.
“Penn Community Bank’s ongoing support has benefitted the lives of thousands of Bucks County teens at risk, families in need, and residents of the Emergency Homeless Shelter,” said Marlene Piasecki, Interim CEO of Family Service. “Without financial and leadership assistance from local businesses such as Penn Community Bank, Family Service would not be able to help the people we do, and we thank them for their commitment to improving the lives of so many people across the area.”
The Emergency Homeless Shelter Benefit will take place at Aldie Mansion in Doylestown on April 14. For more information on the event and the work of Family Service, visit www.fsabc.org.
