  • PFCU Hits the Pavement to Raise Money & Awareness for Adults and Children with Disabilities

    Over the weekend, PFCU supported Special People in Northeast, Inc.’s annual Possibilities in the Park 5K, a day our employees look forward to each year! The 5K was held in the industrial park surrounding SPIN’s Drummond Road Campus.

    We were happy to have such a great turnout this year, with a team of more than 20 PFCU employees who participated in the run, including Dennis McBride, our Board Treasurer. Employees walked and rain in the race with their families to raise money for the development of community resources and services to help improve the quality of life for adults and children with intellectual disabilities, developmental disabilities and autism.

    Sunday’s race marks the seventh consecutive year we’ve sponsored the event and the Special People in the Northeast, and as always, we are proud to show our support of such a deserving cause. In addition to our team of runners, we were pleased to make a $2,500 donation to the nonprofit.

  • PFCU to Host 2nd Annual Small Business Networking Event for Fishtown-area Business Owners

    On Wednesday, April 30th, PFCU will host a Small Business Networking Event at O3 World in Fishtown.  The event, the second of its kind, is part of larger series of events that will be replicated at various locations within PFCU’s footprint throughout the year. The goal is to encourage small business owners to come together to network, socialize and hear from a representative of PFCU report on the economic business climate of a specific Philadelphia neighborhood – and what that means for small businesses.

    For the upcoming event, PFCU has partnered with New Kensington Community Development Corporation (NKCDC) and Fishtown Area Business Association (FABA) to develop a survey distributed among small business owners in the Fishtown/Kensington neighborhood to gain a better understanding of the goals and economic needs of the small business owner and to address small business-oriented topics influencing/of interest to Fishtown and Kensington’s small business owners.

    During the networking event, Mike Driscoll, VP of Business Development at PFCU, will give a presentation based on the results and responses collected from the survey.  Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss amongst each other their reactions to the findings and the meaning behind some of the trends in what people mentioned as issues and obstacles to starting a business. The event also offers small business owners a chance to network with one another while enjoying a relaxing evening of free food and drink. 

    This particular event is extra special in that it is occurring just two weeks after the first anniversary of PFCU’s Fishtown area branch, which opened on April 16, 2013 on Dauphin Street, and has since become very involved in the community.

    More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. They are the foundation of our region’s economy. Unfortunately, many business owners overlook credit unions as a reliable source for taking out a business loan and other small business services. With the Small Business Networking Event, PFCU hopes to increase awareness of its line of business services among the community’s business owners.

  • PFCU Day at Temple University

    On Sunday, February 16, Philadelphia Federal Credit Union celebrated PFCU Day at Temple University. Several PFCU employees and Board members came out to support the Temple Owls men’s basketball team as they faced the SMU Mustangs at the Liacouras Center on Temple’s campus.

    During the game, PFCU employees held a raffle drawing for members who purchased tickets to the game and a winner was selected at half-time.

    The Owls kept fans cheering hard throughout the entire game as the men’s basketball team beat Southern Methodist University 71-64.  To further the excitement, all attendees of Sunday’s game were encouraged to help celebrate Hooter the Owl’s birthday. In honor of the special day, PFCU gave away a Temple Owls knit cap to the first 1,500 fans -- ages 14 and under – to arrive. Following the game, fans had the opportunity to participate in a picture-taking and autograph session with the players.

    The Owls make us proud to have a presence in the Philadelphia community!

  • PFCU Employees Hit the Pavement in Support of Local Philadelphia Neighborhood

    This past Saturday, February 1st, a team of several PFCU employees participated in the 2nd Annual 19154 5K Race in Northeast Philadelphia.  Participants in all shapes, skills and sizes – from athletes to amateurs, runners to walkers, children to adults – 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. 

    Just in its second year, the 19154 5K Race has become a popular event among amateur and avid runners alike, taking participants through a chip-timed, USATF-certified course in Parkwood Manor and Torrey Woods, two picturesque sections of Northeast Philadelphia, both rich in history.

    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.

    PFCU is thankful to have the opportunity to participate in the annual 19154 5K Race and show our support for an important neighborhood entity whose roots are grounded within the PFCU footprint, and who provides assistance and support for hundreds of kids and young adults in Northeast Philadelphia.

    Pictured are PFCU employees Sarah Medina, Sandy Boerner, Dawn McCullough, as well as Dawn’s daughter.

  • Protect Your Identity and the Planet with PFCU Shredding Events

    Start the New Year on a green foot. Join us at one of our upcoming Shredding Days, where members can shred personal documents such as pre-approved credit card offers, cancelled checks and other confidential documents. All documents are safely shredded on site in a large truck and are then recycled.

    According to the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, an estimated 16.6 million people in the United States experienced at least one incident of identity theft in 2012. It can take months to resolve financial and credit problems due to theft, which can lead to serious emotional distress. Save yourself time and anxiety by properly disposing of personal documents. With PFCU’s Shredding Days, we’ve made it easy for you!

    At past Shredding Day events, PFCU members have shredded and recycled thousands of pounds of documents, and we encourage our members to get involved in saving the environment and protecting their identity at Shredding Day events slated for this year as well.

    For your convenience, all PFCU Paper Shredding Day events are scheduled for the 2014 calendar year. Check for the location nearest you. Here’s a sneak peek of the upcoming Shredding Days, but be sure to visit www.pfcu.com for more information:
