Penn Community Bank, Bucks County’s leading independent, mutual financial organization, has been named Corporate Citizen of the Year by Family Service Association of Bucks County, a nonprofit that provides invaluable resources and assistance to those in need throughout Bucks County.
The award recognizes the support that the community-focused local bank has provided for nearly two decades. William P. Larkin, Jr., CPA, who is vice chairman of the Penn Community Bank board of directors, serves as treasurer of the Family Service board of directors, and Penn Community Bank acted as a sponsor for the organization’s 2017 Drive for Youth Golf Outing. Several bank team members also served on the fundraiser’s planning committee.
“Penn Community Bank has changed the lives of generations of Bucks County residents and has helped us to build a stronger community,” said Family Service CEO Audrey J. Tucker. “Without their consistent commitment, we would not be able to provide ongoing support to teens at risk, families in need, or residents of the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter. We are honored to recognize Penn Community Bank as our 2017 Corporate Citizen of the Year.”
With offices in Bristol, Langhorne, Doylestown, and Quakertown, Family Service aids nearly 30,000 people across Bucks County each year. While the organization may be best known for running the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter in Levittown, it also offers a wide variety of programs aimed at increasing opportunities for adults, protecting seniors, reducing substance use disorders, improving the lives of those with mental illness, preparing children for the future, and much more.
“To be recognized by an organization such as Family Service is truly an honor,” said Penn Community Bank Chief Relationship Officer Todd R. Hurley. “The work that they do to combat homelessness, treat mental illness, empower children, educate parents, prevent suicide, and treat substance use disorders is admirable. Penn Community Bank is proud to support Family Service and to help the organization improve Bucks County, one family at a time.”
