Penn Community Bank is donating $30,000 to the Bucks County Health
Improvement Partnership (BCHIP) to establish the Penn Community Bank
Healthcare Operational Priority Emergency (HOPE) Fund which will cover
the cost of care for some of the community’s most vulnerable residents.
In concert with Bucks County hospitals and local officials, the HOPE
Fund is established to provide resources to support individuals who are
unsheltered due to COVID-19; these may include shelter clients or those
who cannot safely return to group homes. The six Bucks County hospitals
affiliated with BCHIP are: Grand View Health, Doylestown Health, St.
Luke’s Hospital – Quakertown, Lower Bucks Hospital, Jefferson Bucks
Hospital and St. Mary Medical Center. Other partners include the Bucks
County Intermediate Unit, Bucks County Medical Society, Bucks County
Department of Health, and other community organizations and nonprofits.
The donation is Penn Community Bank’s second major contribution in
response to the COVID-19 outbreak. In March, the bank partnered with the
United Way of Bucks County to launch the Bucks County COVID-19 Recovery
Fund, including a $25,000 initial contribution. To learn more and to
