  • Students, Members, Family and Friends Celebrate PFCU Day at Temple University with Half-Court Shot Contest and Prize Giveaways

    This past Saturday, February 14, one lucky Temple University student was given a chance to win $10,000 during the Temple University Men’s Basketball Game. Connor Rattey was randomly selected from among all of the students who entered PFCU’s Shot to Win $10,000 contest, to take a half-court shot in front of a packed Liacouras Center.

    Connor’s shot came close and even hit the net, but sadly, no fanfare. Fortunately for Connor, he didn’t walk away empty handed. PFCU awarded him a $100 PFCU Visa Gift Card as a consolation prize for participating in the contest.

    This special promotion was part of the credit union’s annual PFCU Day at Temple University celebration. In addition to rooting for Connor as he attempted the half-court shot, PFCU employees and members, students and fans came out to support the Temple Owls Men’s Basketball Team, cheering them on to victory as they beat out the East Carolina Pirates, 66 – 53.

    To further the excitement, attendees of Saturday’s game shared in celebrating Hooter the Owl’s birthday. In honor of the special day, PFCU gave away a Temple Owls duffle bag to the first 1,500 fans -- ages 14 and under – to arrive, and had a raffle prize drawing for a Kindle Fire HDX.

    Thanks to all who entered PFCU’s Shot to Win $10,000 Contest, and for coming out to Saturday’s game to help us celebrate PFCU Day at Temple University!

  • PFCU Stays Active in the Community with 19154 5K and PFCU Day at Bloomsburg University


    On Saturday, January 31st, a team of PFCU employees took to the streets during the 3rd Annual 19154 5K Race in Northeast Philadelphia. Participants of all different skill levels and from neighborhoods all over Philadelphia gathered in the depths of winter to support the community and take part in this race.

    All proceeds from the event benefited the youth and young adult ministries of St. Anselm Church in Northeast Philadelphia.
    Now in its third year, the 19154 5K Race has become a neighborhood staple, taking runners through a chip-timed, USATF-certified course in Parkwood Manor and Torrey Woods, two picturesque sections of Northeast Philadelphia.

    The family-oriented race helps to support the area’s ongoing work of forming responsible young Philadelphians within the 19154 neighborhoods and beyond, and serves as a great opportunity for PFCU employees to be active in the community and advocate for a great cause.

    In addition to several PFCU employees running in the race, PFCU served as a mile-marker sponsor.

    On Saturday, February 7, employees from our Bloomsburg branch attended the PFCU sponsored-basketball game to watch the Bloomsburg Huskies take on the East Stroudsburg Warriors. The Huskies lost 81-69 but the fans appreciated the PFCU co-branded knit caps, compliments of PFCU.

  • PFCU Presents Generous Donation to Delaware Valley Veterans Home

    Last week several PFCU representatives visited the Delaware Valley Veterans Home to present them with a generous donation to help support the variety of personalized services and recreational programs available to residents. Run by the state of Pennsylvania, the Delaware Valley Veterans Home is located near PFCU’s Operations Center in northeast Philadelphia and is home to 171 veteran residents and their spouses.

    The donation was funded by the proceeds raised from PFCU’s inaugural Custom & Classic Benefit Car Show in October. This daylong event offered a variety of family-friendly activities for attendees, including a judged car show with more than 80 competing vehicles in 17 different classes.

  • PFCU Brings Holiday Cheer to St. Ignatius Residents with Santa For Seniors Program

    This past week PFCU employees delivered 148 wrapped presents to each of the residents at St. Ignatius Nursing Home. The gift drop-off is part of PFCU’s “Santa For Seniors” program, an internal community initiative that allows employees to adopt a senior to fulfill his or her holiday wish of a gift. 2014 marks the third consecutive year PFCU has partnered with the West Philadelphia nursing home to lift holiday spirits and make the season brighter for St. Ignatius residents.

    “This time of year can be extremely lonely for seniors, many of whom don’t get to enjoy the holidays as they once did,” said Amy Baranowski, Human Resources Trainer at PFCU.
    “It’s heartwarming to see how a small token of kindness can have such a big impact. Each employee’s generosity is met with great appreciation and the unforgettable look of the residents’ faces lighting up when we arrive.”

    The holiday season is a time to give thanks for our own good fortune and give back to others who are less fortunate. Every year PFCU aims to help our neighbors who may not have family and friends with whom to celebrate the holidays, and the “Santa For Seniors” program has become a nice time-honored tradition to fulfill that mission.

  • PFCU Helps Fight Hunger Through Holiday Virtual Food Drive


    We are happy to announce that in little over three weeks’ time, with the help of PFCU members, friends, family and fans, we were able to raise more than $2,000 for PFCU’s Virtual Holiday Food Drive, including a 100% matched donation by PFCU. All donations that went toward filling our virtual shopping cart will be used to purchase actual food for families across the region who do not have the resources to do so themselves.

    The virtual food drive was created with the help of Philabundance, who, since 1986 has provided assistance to nine counties in the Delaware Valley through 500 member food pantries, kitchens and shelters as well as direct neighborhood distribution programs. Thanks to everyone’s generous donations, we are one step closer to ending hunger and helping to put food on the table for hundreds of families in need.

    Nearly one million people in the Delaware Valley face hunger every day, making up almost two percent of the 49 million Americans struggling with food insecurity. Every dollar collected for PFCU’s virtual food drive goes toward providing two meals to a child, family or neighbor in need.

    PFCU has long been committed to serving Philadelphia neighborhoods, and the Virtual Food Drive was a perfect opportunity to foster a stronger sense of community and social responsibility. With the help of members, friends, colleagues, and families, we were able to make the holiday season brighter for so many families and leave a lasting impact on the communities within our footprint and beyond. Thank you again!

  • PFCU Attends Several Community Events Across Philadelphia Neighborhoods

    PFCU has been all over the map the past few weeks sponsoring and participating in a number of iconic Philadelphia events. On September 18, PFCU employees were out and about enjoying the fresh fall air during the family-friendly Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll.

    On September 27, PFCU served as a proud sponsor of the 2014 Cione Family Festival. The marquee event for Friends of Cione Park, the festival helps to raise money for the preservation and improvement of Cione Park in Olde Richmond, Philadelphia. That same day, a PFCU-sponsored team took to the roads during the MS 150 City to Shore Bike Ride. Alongside 7,000 other cyclists, Team Captain Pat Williams, CIO, led his group of six on a 75-mile journey from Philadelphia to Ocean City, NJ. Named “Best Cycling Getaway in NJ” by Bicycling Magazine, this annual bike ride always proves to be a great way for PFCU employees to be active in the community and advocate for a great cause.

    On October 4, PFCU made waves on the Schuylkill River during the Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Festival, during which the PFCU team came in 1st place on their third and final race. On October 12th they strutted up Broad Street as a title sponsor for the 2014 Columbus Day Parade. PFCU Board Members Anna DeFusco and Vincent Colaberdino, along with several PFCU employees, marched the parade route alongside Chazz Palminteri, this year’s Grand Marshal.

    Where will PFCU be next? Come cheer on employees, family and friends participating in the upcoming Delaware River 5K on October 19 at the Delaware Riverfront Greenway in Port Richmond and the Northeast Philly 5K in the Far Northeast. Not only is PFCU a sponsor of these community events, they’ve also offered to cover the cost of registration for the PFCU employees interested in running/walking the 5Ks.
