Univest Raises $6,650 for Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House During Show Your Stripes Fundraiser

Univest Financial recently teamed up with the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House (PRMH) for its Show Your Stripes campaign raising $6,650 for PRMH’s mission of supporting families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope. The money was raised through the sale of iconic red and white striped socks in all 39 of Univest’s financial centers.

Univest customers and employees embraced the promotion by purchasing more than 650 striped items during the three-week sale. Additionally, Univest employees showed support for the campaign by wearing their red and white stripes on October 15 and posting photos on social media to help generate awareness.

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.
