Community Involvement

At PNCU, community involvement goes beyond business relationships. We want to make an impact in every community we serve.  We volunteer our time, donate money and continually lend a helping hand. Caring is one of the things we do best. In this way, we believe we’re making a difference in lives of the members and community. Since 1921, we have taken pride in supporting members and the communities in which we serve and we don’t plan to slow down.
