Customers who opened a checking account through the bank-at-work program could choose one of five area nonprofits to receive a $10 donation in their name
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (January 2018) – Less than one year after its launch, Penn Community Bank’s bank-at-work program, Workplace Connections, has raised $5,000 to be donated to five Bucks County nonprofits.
Begun in February 2017, Workplace Connections brings no-cost financial literacy programs and convenient banking services to local businesses and schools. It also includes an important giving component; for every employee who opened an account through Workplace Connections in 2017, Penn Community Bank would make a donation to one of five area nonprofits. New account holders could direct the donation to the Bucks County Opportunity Council, Bucks County SPCA, Central Bucks Family YMCA, Family Service Association of Bucks County, or Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County.
The 2017 program raised a total of $5,000 for the five nonprofits, with the lion’s share of the proceeds being designated to go to the Bucks County SPCA.
“We are so grateful to Penn Community Bank for inviting us to participate in this innovative program, and grateful to all the new bank customers who designated us to receive their donations,” said Linda Reider, Executive Director of the Bucks County SPCA. “As an independent nonprofit, we rely on the generous support of people and organizations like Penn Community Bank to enable us to continue our work to advocate for all the animals in need in Bucks County.”
