Univest Bank and Trust Co. recently presented Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC®) of the Philadelphia Region Inc. with a check for $25,000. The donation represents the amount Univest has committed to RMHC’s “Room in Our Hearts” campaign over the next five years.
The fundraising campaign supports their current expansion at the Chestnut Street House. Due to high demand and limited space, they’ve had to turn away more than 5,000 families in need. The renovations, which began in 2017, will more than double its lodging at this facility and provide a comfortable space for families with seriously ill children.
Univest has been actively growing its support of Philadelphia nonprofits since entering the city in January 2015. Supporting the local communities it serves is a focus for Univest that plays a major role in its expansion efforts. In 2018, Univest donated more than $1.9 million across its service area and its employees contributed 18,705 volunteer hours.
