Lending their talents
As part of the mission to help communities grow and prosper, PeoplesBank associates are encouraged to donate their talents to help on other projects. They’ve worked on homes for Habitat for Humanity, painted tables at Camp Pennwood, and participated in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes for YWCA.
After helping sand and paint tables at Camp Pennwood last year, Matt says he felt uplifted.
“Everybody decides how they give back on a personal basis,” Matt says. “But to have an organization that supports you in that endeavor is incredible.”
This year, PeoplesBank associates spent the Day of Action cleaning patios for SpiriTrust Lutheran in Hanover, tidying up with the Southern York County Branch of the YMCA, as well as other projects. It’s rewarding for Brooke, not just in the moment, but as time goes on to see the impact she can have in her community.
“It’s a great feeling,” she says, “getting to see the organization that I work for and that I’m a part of impacting the lives of people I know.”
