East Penn and its employees were recognized for their achievements at the United Way of Berks County’s Annual Dinner in April by being presented with the “Outstanding Employee Campaign” Award. This marked the 2nd consecutive year that East Penn has received this award.
Also, for the 12th consecutive year, East Penn was recognized as a Top 10 supporting organization ranking 2nd in terms of giving among all the participating companies within Berks County.
The United Way campaign at East Penn is truly a team effort with the United Way committee and three Loaned Campaign Specialists working tirelessly to communicate the LIVE UNITED message. They encourage employees to support the local community and in turn the employees positively respond through their generous support.
The dollars raised have an incredible impact on United Way’s ability to improve lives in our local community around its focus areas of Education, Income, and Health and Safety Net Services. Together, the employees of East Penn are helping to improve our community and make a positive difference in the lives of thousands of people.
