Benchmark Federal Credit Union

Benchmark employees turned “pink” for a day to raise money for women with breast cancer. They wore pink to work and contributed funds for Unite for HER, a local nonprofit that provides support services for women in Chester County and the surrounding areas diagnosed with breast cancer.

Suzanne Herr, Benchmark’s Senior Loan Officer, organized the fundraiser and presented the donation check this month to the West Chester-based Unite for HER.

“We recently opened a new branch in West Chester, so it is especially meaningful for us to donate to such a great organization there,” said Rebecca Worthington, Benchmark’s Vice President of Marketing. “As the only federal credit union to serve Chester County exclusively, we are committed to partnering with organizations that support our community and truly inspire us.”

Lincoln University

Lincoln is partnering with The Barnes Foundation to offer a summer internship program. The 10-week program, which began the first week of June and continues through the second week of August, enables students to work with museum professionals on projects related to the student’s academic interest.

The internship program, which pays for housing and living expenses, was launched this summer thanks to a generous gift from Pamela Bundy ’84, who also serves as a Lincoln University representative on the board of The Barnes Foundation.

Students selected for the inaugural summer internship program are from Lincoln’s visual and performing arts program. Through a competitive application process, the three students selected — Brittany Longshore, Whitney McQueen, and Aaqila Youngblood — will be housed at Moore College of Art and Design, immediately across the Benjamin Franklin Parkway from the Barnes’ downtown campus.
