Twenty-five senior citizens will be able to cool off this summer with a new fan received compliments of TruMark Financial® Credit Union’s Concern for Community initiative. The fans will be a welcome addition when the temperatures soar into the 90s.
In May, the credit union partnered with local agencies which work directly with senior citizens. The following organizations identified clients who needed fans and will distribute them:
- Greater Harleysville and North Penn Senior Services (GHNPSS)
- Old Pine Community Center, Philadelphia
- Phoenixville Senior Activity Center
- Wayne Senior Center
A driving force behind the initiative is fulfilling one of the seven cooperative principles, Concern for Community. Other examples of the way TruMark Financial 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.
