Spring has finally bloomed in the Philadelphia area and PFCU is taking full advantage of the warmer weather. Throughout the month of May, PFCU will be making their rounds at a number of community events in and around Philadelphia.
On Saturday, May 3, PFCU joined the festivities at the 44th annual Mount Airy Day, which celebrates this Northwest neighborhood of Philadelphia. The annual festival featured fun for the whole family, including food, live entertainment, shopping, games and more. More than 7,500 Mount Airy residents stopped by the celebration throughout the day.
As a corporate sponsor, PFCU provided essential financial support for Mount Airy Day, as well as community programs for East and West Mount Airy Neighbors associations, which are committed to preserving and enhancing the greater Mount Airy community.

On Saturday, May 10, PFCU will have a table set up at the 56th annual Spruce Hill May Fair in Clark Park. Representatives from the credit union will be available to distribute materials and giveaways and to answer questions about PFCU’s products and services. This year’s fair will feature local musical groups, food from some of the best food trucks in University City and raffle prize giveaways.

On Sunday, May 11, PFCU employees will once again be participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Participants and their family members will walk and run in support of raising awareness of breast cancer and funds to continue the ongoing effort to find a cure. Now in its 24th year in Philadelphia, the race annually gathers thousands of men, women and children and PFCU is proud to be among the masses walking for a great cause.

On Saturday, May 17, PFCU will attend the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby (KKSD) as a sponsor and judge of the neighborhood competition. KKSD now attracts more than 10,000 people to Kensington every year and was designated “Best Festival in Philadelphia” by Philadelphia Magazine in 2012. Organized in 2007 by our friends at NKCDC, the event is a design competition and parade of human-powered vehicle floats, all of which portray an artistic theme. The derby celebrates human powered transit and art in the Kensington neighborhood and PFCU is excited to be a part of this community event that showcases the area’s incredible mix of local artists.
