Committed to Giving Back to the Community
At Peoples Federal Savings Bank we know that a successful business ultimately contributes to a community’s quality of life. And, more importantly, for generations that’s how we have measured our success. Through our employee volunteers, sponsorships and the Peoples Federal Savings Bank Charitable Foundation grants, we are committed to giving back.
The mission of the Foundation is to provide financial support to charitable and community service organizations in the communities in which the Bank operates.
The Foundation is dedicated completely to community activities and the promotion of charitable causes.
Last week we were able to provide funds for the security deposit on the first apartment for one of our women HUES to Home clients. She had been homeless since 2009 and suffering health and mental health issues due to serious, long-term domestic violence. Her housing would not have been possible without security deposit assistance due to the fact that she receives very limited cash benefits.
We will also be using additional funds this week to purchase new beds (frames, mattresses, and box springs) for several clients who will be moving into housing on February 1st.
Thank you so much for making this a reality for some of our community’s most vulnerable citizens!
