It focuses on three key issues: access to a high-quality education, a stable income and good health. The donations from Penn Community Bank help the organization to feed the hungry, give the homeless a path home, help seniors and families in crisis, and give at-risk young children access to care and education.

“We continue to be so grateful for the team at Penn Community Bank,” said Marissa Christie, president and chief executive officer of United Way of Bucks County. “Their dedication enables us to improve the local community by alleviating poverty, supporting education, and increasing self-sufficiency across Bucks County.”
