We're a Driving Force!

The PBCC puts over 20,000 miles on our van each year just from driving to Grassroots Partners events, press conferences, health fairs, meetings and other activities all throughout Pennsylvania. That’s why when Penn State University Lady Lion Basketball sponsored the PBCC to have our van wrapped, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity!

I.D. Wraps did a great job turning our formerly silver Toyota Sienna mini-van into one big pink awareness piece to take across the state. If you see us out in your area feel free to honk, shout and wave as we go by!

Watch our van being wrapped in the high speed installation video below. Thanks again to Lady Lion Basketball and I.D. Wraps for making this dream come true!


Are you ready for summer?

We’ve been seeing a lot of snow recently here in PA. With two large storms behind us, it’s only natural to be looking forward to warmer weather again. Something keeping us in a summer state of mind at the PBCC is the 3rd Annual Home Run Derby. We’ve joined up with the PA Association of Community Bankers once again for a one-of-a-kind event to raise not only funds for the PBCC but also awareness.

We might be 138 days away from taking the field in Harrisburg for the first event, but we’re hard at work to make the Derby bigger and better than ever! Feel free to pass information on to your friends, family and coworkers. There are still opportunities to sponsor, put a team together, or volunteer in each of the 11 stadiums. We hope to see you all Taking a Swing Against Breast Cancer this July!
