Hyperion Bank Hosts PACB Picnic
On May 24th, when nature threatened to rain on the Pennsylvania Community Bankers Association (PACB) Difference Makers Picnic, scheduled to take place at nearby Penn Treaty Park, Hyperion Bank happily invited PACB Chairman Troy Campbell, PACB staff, and more than 40 community bankers to picnic in our Community Room. Along with food and fun, we played a competitive game of cornhole to raise funds for the PACB Foundation, which since 1994 has provided college tuition scholarships to community-minded high school seniors. Our Hyperion Bank team enjoyed meeting new friends who share our commitment to community building through community banking. #DifferenceMakers #BankLocal

Chairman & CEO Charlie Crawford donates 100th pint of blood to American Red Cross
Celebrate the July 4th weekend by donating blood and platelets, when the Red Cross needs it most
Hyperion Bank Chairman & CEO Charlie Crawford recently donated his 100th pint of blood to the American Red Cross. Over the 30 years that Charlie has been donating blood, he doesn't know how many lives he's helped to save, but in March 2013 he did have the chance to meet one grateful recipient: supermodel Niki Taylor (standing center left, next to Charlie in photo below).

As reported in the United Kingdom's Daily Mail , 12 years after Ms. Taylor suffered serious injuries from a horrific car accident, she finally met the blood donors who helped save her life--including Charlie. The Celebrity Apprentice star needed more than 100 blood transfusions during her recovery treatment, with more than 300 donors providing the blood she needed to survive.


The American Red Cross relies on donors to keep its blood supply strong for people who need transfusions year-round, and particularly during the Independence Day weekend, when accidents are historically at high levels. But due to vacations, the number of volunteer-led blood drives typically drops to its lowest number over the July 4th week. Fewer blood drives at workplaces and community organizations means less blood in the blood banks, so when you make a donation for Independence Day, you can truly make a difference. Learn more about the need and donating blood to the American Red Cross.

Universal Banker
Chris has more than a dozen years of community banking experience. As a former Head Teller for other banks, he has worked in various Philly neighborhoods, from Mayfair and Bridesburg to Roxborough and Old City. Chris most recently served Fishtown and Northern Liberties in 2014, and since joining Hyperion Bank in May 2019, he is glad to be back in our vibrant community.

"Community banks are important because they are woven into the fabric of the community. Larger banks tend to be a faceless institution while smaller banks are directly involved through their own members participating, sponsoring or both," says Chris.
Chris says the best part of his job is getting to know and interact with customers. He adds, "I've made some very good friends working in banking. I always liked small community banks, and I'm happy to be at Hyperion because I feel like your voice is heard, and you can make a positive change in how the company operates."

Chris grew up in Philadelphia and now lives in Fishtown, where he enjoys living and working in the same community and assisting neighbors and business owners with banking services.

Manayunk Arts Festival, Thursday, June 22-23
Main Street, Manayunk
The June festival calendar would not be complete without the region's largest outdoor juried arts festival, attracting hundreds of artists working in jewelry, ceramics, woodworks, fabric, painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, and sculpture, from all over America. The 200,000 people who attend every year also come for the great food, alfresco dining and drinks, music, and festival atmosphere. Note that parking is tight, many streets are closed, and driving is not recommended, but it's easy to take SEPTA bus routes 35 or 61, or on regional rail take the Manayunk/Norristown Line to the Manayunk train stop. Even better--bike along the beautiful Schyulkill River Trail! Learn more.
