Chief Relationship Officer Todd R. Hurley to help lead nonprofit that offers assistance to families in need in the Pennridge area
PERKASIE, Pa. (June 2018) – Penn Community Bank is proud to announce that Chief Relationship Officer Todd R. Hurley has joined the board of directors of Pennridge FISH, a nonprofit that serves families in need in the Pennridge School District.
“We are thrilled to welcome Todd to the board of directors of Pennridge FISH,” said President Harry Tucker. “We rely on support from leaders like Todd to make sure that Pennridge FISH remains healthy and vibrant and able to fulfill its mission, which is to help our struggling neighbors meet their daily needs.”
Founded in 1972, Pennridge FISH – which stands for Fellowship in Serving Humanity – maintains a food pantry and clothing outlet that distributes items donated by local churches, businesses, social organizations and individuals. FISH also receives food from federal, state and regional programs, as well as numerous local farms.
Penn Community Bank has supported Pennridge FISH for years, most recently completing a five-year, $25,000 pledge that helped the organization buy its new headquarters building at 800 W. Chestnut St., Perkasie.
“It is an honor to work with the board of directors to ensure that FISH continues to serve as a safety net for our Pennridge neighbors in need,” said Hurley. “As a longtime resident of Perkasie, I know the good work that FISH has been doing for decades, including the summer lunch program, which helps Pennridge kids get enough food when they aren’t in school.”
FISH is accepting donations for its summer lunch program, which offers extra food during July and August for Pennridge families with school-aged children.
“Low-income children normally receive free or subsidized breakfasts and lunches during the school year,” said Paige Neuman, FISH’s Operations Director. “When school lets out for the summer, families often find that they have a hard time keeping food on the table for their active, growing children. FISH is committed to trying to fill that gap.”
Hurley earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from University of Phoenix. He serves on the boards of directors of the Lower Bucks YMCA and of the Pennridge Chamber of Commerce, and is active in community organizations including the Perkasie Rotary Club and the Presbyterian Church of Deep Run.
Pennridge FISH is staffed by one part-time paid administrator and more than 160 volunteers. To learn more, visit https://pennridgefish.org/.
