TruMark Financial Credit Union supports United Way of Bucks County – theportonline

FAIRLESS HILLS – TruMark Financial has donated $7,500 to United Way of Bucks County as part of the credit union’s community outreach initiative, Concern for Community.

TruMark Financial launched Concern for Community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each month, the caisse selects different organizations to receive the resources needed by 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 and government affairs at TruMark Financial Credit Union. “At TruMark Financial, 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 Centraide continue their important work.

“We are very grateful for the support from TruMark Financial,” said Marissa Christie, President and CEO of United Way of Bucks County. “Right now, we are seeing an increase in the number of ALICE (limited assets, limited income, employed) people in need of emergency assistance – and we expect more in the coming months. The support from TruMark Financial will really make a difference as we respond to the growing needs of our community.

In addition to the cash donation, 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 housewares – completely free – to local residents who are struggling financially.
