Patty Turner Part of our Community

Pennian Bank encourages its employees to be actively involved in the communities we live in. For this blog we’ve chosen to feature an employee who continues to go above and beyond to help out a local organization.

Employee: Patty Turner

Location/Position: Customer Service Representative at Bloomfield Borough

How long with Pennian: 22 years

Volunteer Work: Patty has volunteered for the Relay for Life in Perry County for 13 years.

Why Does She Volunteer: “I joined the Relay for Life committee thirteen years ago when my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was passionate about their mission: to work with The American Cancer Society to research a cure for all cancer.” 

Biggest Challenge: “While we live in a small community that is very generous, I also know that it has its drawbacks. Everyone gets hit by every other organization for donations, which makes is difficult to raise money at times. It can be challenging to find new ways to fundraise.”

Most Rewarding Aspect:  “The most rewarding part of volunteering is knowing that in some way, I helped find a cure. It may not happen tomorrow, but we have definitely make great advances. Unfortunately, this is an organization that touches all of us.”

Organization Information:
