Penn Community Bank, the largest mutual bank in eastern Pennsylvania, hosted its second-annual Day of Service on Wednesday, May 24.

The organization-wide event partnered bank team members with 12 nonprofit organizations from Philadelphia to the Lehigh Valley to donate over 1,000 hours of volunteer service and $150,000 in charitable contributions.

“As the region’s leading community bank, truly being a part of the community is at the heart of who we are. Day of Service is another way for us to express our core values and mission-based brand,” said Jeane M. Vidoni, president and CEO of Penn Community Bank.

“I’m so proud of the 300-plus team members who volunteered at over a dozen sites to make a true impact, and grateful for the ability to contribute $150,000 to partner organizations to help them carry out their important missions.”

“Day of Service is another example of Penn Community Bank’s strong institutional culture and belief in the role of corporate partners in developing stronger, more connected communities – whether though financial services, monetary support, or hands-on involvement,” said Bernard Tynes, Chief Marketing and Impact Officer of Penn Community Bank.
