Pennsylvania’s Community Banks are keeping the lights on in hometowns across the Commonwealth. In our ongoing documentary series, we share stories about how community banks serve their communities and help to ensure their hometowns not only survive, but thrive.
Part 2 of PACB’s “Bank on Community” series visits Phoenixville Federal Bank & Trust in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. When the steel industry trickled out of town, the people began to follow. Things became gloomy. When times were tough, Phoenixville Federal Bank & Trust was there to help the community rise again. Their commitment to their hometown is the definition of community banking. “With community banking, people know who we are. And we know the issues and the challenges in the community. We work with the small business owners, the non-profits, really our neighbors. We help them through their needs – through their challenges.” – Doug Darlington, President/CEO, Phoenixville Federal Bank and Trust
