On April 27, PFCU and Gaudenzia House of Passage teamed up for a fundraising scavenger hunt organized by DePaul House, a nonprofit that aims to reconnect homeless men to the workforce, help them to budget and save their income and move to their own homes within one year. The event sent Erin Ellis, Accredited Financial Counselor at PFCU, and her teammates on a quest throughout the city to benefit Philadelphia’s homeless population.
