At the core of PenFinancial's Truly Local Commitment is our pledge to make our community a better place to live and work. Through collaborative work with local charities and not-for-profits, we're addressing challenges like poverty, affordable housing and mental health issues. Each year, we commit a portion of our profits to support truly local initiatives that help our communities thrive.
Through our Truly Local Ambassador program, all employees are encouraged to get involved by volunteering time with local community organizations. Our staff choose the causes that are most meaningful for them, and PenFinancial makes a financial contribution to that charity on the employee’s behalf.
We encourage you to join us and show your support as well.
Socks For Change is PenFinancial's signature partnership as part of our Truly Local Commitment. Socks For Change provides warm, quality wool socks and winter accessories to charities, shelters and schools in every community across Niagara. Socks for Change also donates winter accessories such as toques and scarves.
Since our partnership began in 2018, working together we've donated more than 65,000 pairs of socks and 100,000 winter accessories to those in need.
We're thrilled to announce PenFi is once again partnering with Socks for Change to deliver warm socks to those in need this winter. New for 2020, when you purchase one pair of wool socks, two pairs of socks will be donated to someone in need.
