When Brentwood Bank uses the term “local bank”, we mean a company that commits financial and people resources to organizations in our hometown. Every year Brentwood Bank partners with organizations that have an impact on people living in the Greater Pittsburgh Area.
Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh
For more than 40 years, Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh has been a leader in providing safety, shelter, support and guidance to all victims of domestic violence. Their expert and highly trained staff provide life-saving programs and personalized services designed to help break the cycle of violence.
Recently, Brentwood Bank employees teamed up to build shelves to store donated items that people need when they are “starting over”. Brentwood Bank is proud to support this community organization!
It is through the support of the entire community that their work will endure, and survivors of abuse will find the hope and strength necessary to rebuild their lives.
This holiday season, Brentwood Bank was privileged to support the Washington County based City Mission through the Angel Tree Program. The City Mission offers two branches of service: Compassionate Care reaches out to those most in need by offering basic services such as meals, shelter, and medical care and the Life Recovery Program assists men, women, and children who are in crisis and looking for life transformation. Over thirty employees participated in donating and wrapping gifts. In early December, eighty-five gifts were delivered to the residents of the Mission in time for the holidays!
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh provides homeowners in low-income neighborhoods with the resources to maintain their home. Through a grant awarded by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh that was sponsored by Brentwood Bank, the program was able to rehabilitate twelve homes in the Hilltop community of Pittsburgh. Employee’s dedicated over 130 hours during two separate projects to paint, lay flooring, patch basement walls, scrape paint, patch ceiling cracks, check smoke and CO detectors, and complete yard work.
