Non-profit organizations get support from local credit union

FORT WASHINGTON, PA (December 7, 2021) — Due to the pandemic, non-profit organizations that provide services for individuals and families needing temporary shelter have seen an increase in numbers entering their facilities. As part of its Concern for Community initiative, TruMark Financial® Credit Union donated approximately 500 toiletry kits which included a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, comb, shaving cream, soap, and antibiotic ointment to five local agencies to distribute to their clients.

The recipients of the toiletry kits were:

  • Bucks County Housing Group
  • Inter-Faith Hospitality Network, Montgomery County
  • Pathways PA, Delaware County
  • Safe Harbor of Chester County
  • Strengthening and Empowering Lives, Philadelphia

“We are grateful to TruMark Financial’s Concern for Community initiative for reaching out to help the families we serve. Our families often come to the center without the essential toiletries they need,” said Renee L. Toussáint, President and CEO of PathWays PA.

Since the credit union created the initiative in January 2021, it has supported more than 50 different non-profit groups that serve individuals experiencing difficult times. A driving force behind the initiative is fulfilling one of the seven cooperative principles, Concern for Community.

Inter-Faith Housing Network of Main Line provides emergency shelter for its clients and can always use toiletry kits. TruMark Financial AVP and Trooper Branch Manager Mary Ellen Kull (Pictured far right) was welcomed with open arms and big smiles when she delivered tote bags filled to the brim with kits.

The donation was a component of the Concern for Community initiative.
