Penn Community Bank has been awarded by Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County.
The 2017 Spirit of Habit Award was awarded to the financial institution in recognition of its “long-standing support” of the nonprofit.
The award was presented at the nonprofit’s annual fundraising benefit, Hard Hats and High Heels, which honors people or organizations that have demonstrated years of dedication in supporting the Habitat for Humanity mission to build strong communities in Bucks County.
“We are grateful to Penn Community Bank and all of their team members for their outstanding service to this community,” said Florence Kawoczka, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County. “We recognize their commitment to helping make Bucks County a better place for everyone to call home by awarding them the 2017 Spirit of Habitat Award.”
The Penn Community Bank has provided Habitat with more than 200 hours of volunteered labor in building products and have sponsored three Habitat homes throughout the community. Bank employees have served on the board of directors, committees and advisory board. The bank even donated land in Croydon for the organization’s 101st home.
“The joy that we get from supporting a wonderful organization such as Habitat Bucks, which gives so many Bucks County families new hope, is a reward in itself,” said Jeane M. Coyle, President and CEO of Penn Community Bank. “We are delighted to do our part to help Habitat continue its mission to build communities and empower families.”
