TruMark Financial awarded a donation of $7,500 to United Way of Bucks County as part of the credit union’s community outreach initiative, Concern for Community.
TruMark launched Concern for Community as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each month, the credit union selects different organizations to receive resources needed for their clients.
“During the pandemic, we noticed that many local nonprofits were stretched thin and in need of resources,” said Christine Woods, Vice President of Public Relations & Government Affairs at TruMark Financial Credit Union. “Here at TruMark, we care about our communities – and we want them to be as strong as possible. That’s why we’re proud to help organizations like United Way continue their important work.”
“We are so grateful for the support of TruMark Financial,” said Marissa Christie, President & CEO at United Way of Bucks County. “Right now, we are seeing a spike in folks who are ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) in need of emergency assistance – and we anticipate more in the coming months. TruMark’s support will truly make a difference as we respond to our community’s increasing needs.”
In addition to the monetary gift, the credit union also donated brand-new children’s books to United Way’s HELP Center.
The HELP Center provides essentials like cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items, and home goods – completely free of charge – to local residents who are struggling financially.
