Team 44 Volunteers at Variety Phila as part of Xtraordinary Day of Service

Team 44 Business Capital, the nationwide SBA lending division of Berkshire Bank, volunteered with Variety, the Children’s Charity of the Greater Delaware Valley in Norristown, PA. More than 1,000 Berkshire Bank employees rolled up their sleeves on June 13 and helped make the communities where they live and work stronger and more resilient by volunteering at more than 45 local nonprofits across the bank’s markets as part of Xtraordinary Day (X Day), the bank’s annual day of service.

“The 44 team helped the Variety Club of Philadelphia prepare for its Summer Camp season by painting some cabins and doing necessary work in and around the complex’s greenhouses. They pulled weeds, laid cardboard, spread wood chips and planted various vegetables,” said Greg Poehlmann, Senior Vice President, Business Banking. “I’m very proud of the turn out and effort put forth by the entire team at 44 Business Capital, when duty calls, they always respond!” Greg Poehlmann, Senior Vice President, Business Banking.”
Ajo Mathew, VP, SBA Post Closing lent a helping hand planting the community garden at Variety of Philadelphia during X Day volunteer efforts.

Every year, Berkshire Bank closes all its financial centers and offices at 12 p.m. to host X Day, which supports nonprofits that address hunger, homelessness and affordable housing and aim to create a more equitable, just and sustainable future.

In all, employees participated in more than 50 X Day projects that took place in Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Vermont, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania.
