“Our commitment to service goes beyond banking. Through initiatives like We Stand for Service Day, we aim to make a tangible and positive impact in the Communities we proudly call home,” Vernita Dorsey, senior vice president, director of community strategy at WSFS Bank, said in a press release. “We’re thankful to our dedicated Associates and community partners, whose unwavering support make impactful initiatives like this possible.”

“In a world where food waste and food insecurity coexist, Sharing Excess aims to revolutionize food sharing by solving the logistical barriers of rescue and redistribution. We rely on volunteers, such as WSFS Associates, to sort, glean and distribute fresh nutritional food to our neighbors in need,” Evan Ehlers, founder, Sharing Excess, said.

“All of us at HomeFront are incredibly grateful for the dedicated volunteers from Bryn Mawr Trust, who have made a significant impact on our families’ lives through their selfless service at HomeFront’s Resource Network. This includes their help within our Choice Food Pantry, the Diaper Resource Center, our FreeStore and Furnish the Future program. Their commitment and hard work have enabled us to provide food, diapers, household items and more to countless families in need. Together, we are making a real difference and building a stronger community,” Gina Davio, community engagement manager, HomeFront, said.

“With the hundreds who come to us daily and the thousands that depend upon us for basic needs like food, shelter and clothing, we need committed corporations like WSFS to provide the essential volunteer efforts to do all the work. In the end, this work brings hope for lives helped and turned around,” Rev. Tom Laymon, Sr. Pastor, president, CEO, Sunday Breakfast Mission, said.

Volunteer events were held in all three counties in Delaware at organizations such as Sunday Breakfast Mission, Read Aloud Delaware and Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding; in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Dauphin counties in Pennsylvania at organizations like Cradles to Crayons, Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County, Chester County Food Bank, Variety The Children’s Charity and YWCA of Greater Harrisburg; and in Burlington, Camden and Mercer counties in New Jersey at organizations including Cathedral Kitchen, Urban Promise NJ, HomeFront NJ and the Burlington Township Food Pantry.
