Penn Community Bank recently hosted its second annual Day of Service, an organization-wide event that partners bank team members with 12 area nonprofit organizations 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.”
