Giving back to the community
Recently, a group of volunteers from Brentwood Bank teamed up with Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh to help repair and modify a Clairton home in order to make it safer, healthier and more accessible. From painting and patching to installing railings and fixing a stubborn door, the team braved the heat to help an elderly member of our community. Turns out our employees are good with their hands, not just their brains!
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh provides rewarding volunteer opportunities if you'd like to help others in your community.

Brentwood Bank wins PACB INSPIRE award
Earlier this summer a team of Brentwood Bank employees travelled to Harrisburg to accept a PACB INSPIRE award, in recognition of the role that our Little Things marketing program played in supporting our community during the pandemic.
The first phase of the program, called Laugh, asked our Facebook followers to submit selfies of their "pandemic hair;" i.e., those ultra-bad-hair days caused by the months-long hiatus from visiting hair stylists. Lucky winners received gift cards to local salons.
Phase two, called Love, solicited donations of pet food and we delivered over 1,700 pounds of food to local food banks for distribution to needy pet owners. Many thanks to our customers, employees and other members of our community for their generosity.
The Little Things campaign campaign allowed us to stay connected to—and help financially support—our community during an extremely challenging time.
We're proud to be honored by the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers!
