Credit union donates $10,000 to local non-profits aiding Hurricane Ida victims

Residents in Southeastern Pennsylvania were severely impacted by flooding as the remnants of Hurricane Ida swept through the region. The hurricane left flooding and extensive damage to homes and businesses, leaving many forced to find shelter and supplies. To assist groups in the five-county region that have been working tirelessly to provide relief for individuals and families affected, TruMark Financial® Credit Union made donations totaling $10,000 to the following organizations:

  • American Red Cross of Delaware Valley
  • It Takes A Village, Chester County
  • Montgomery County Foundation
  • Phoenixville Activities Community Services, Chester County
  • Salvation Army of Philadelphia
  • United Way of Bucks County
  • Upper Dublin Township Emergency Fund, Montgomery County

A driving force behind the initiative is fulfilling one of the seven cooperative principles, Concern for Community. TruMark Financial embraces its role as a provider of competitive financial services as well as a true community partner. Other ways the credit union gives back to the community is through its financial literacy program in which employees conduct workshops on topics such as saving, budgeting, credit, and investing at local schools and community organizations and its TruCommunity program where employees receive eight hours of paid time off to allow them to volunteer at a non-profit of their choice.
