YMCA Teams Up with BurnAlong to Keep Communities Healthy through the Pandemic
50th YMCA Joins Groundbreaking Partnership Extending “Y Wellness 24/7” Online and On-Demand Classes to Tens of Thousands throughout the Northeast Doylestown, PA - YMCA of Bucks County today announced that the 50th YMCA location has joined an online partnership with BurnAlong, a leading health, wellness, and social motivation platform, that will reach more than 17,500 YMCA members in eight states with live and on-demand content from local instructors. “This partnership is keeping people connected to the fitness instructors that motivate them to stay healthy,” said Trish Feinthel, chief operations officer of YMCA of Bucks County, who leads the collaboration with BurnAlong and the 50 Ys. “We’re getting tremendous testimonials from people who are using this platform to manage stress, fight chronic disease, and stay connected to loved ones.” With more than 1.5 million minutes of programming viewed, to date, 150 live classes each week and more than 3,500 Y-specific, on-demand classes and 150+ local instructors, this partnership unites YMCA members, instructors, and locations to provide extended access to wellness content through the BurnAlong platform. For the first time, Y members can now connect with Y instructors and classes from across the nation, previously only available to local, in-person Y members. This fall, the Y is increasing the breadth of content offered on BurnAlong with more youth and family-friendly classes, plus personal trainer-led workouts. “While I miss my friends at the gym, the virtual program keeps me in touch,” said Rita A., a senior citizen in Bucks County using online Y classes for stress relief. “It keeps me motivated, starts my day off in a positive light. Helps me deal with everyday things.” The live and on-demand access to the Y classes on the BurnAlong platform, accessed via Y Wellness 24/7, have allowed caregivers to maintain connections built through the Y during the pandemic, working moms to continue their fitness routines from the safety of their homes, and those battling chronic disease to manage pain and build community.

SCORE Mentors Help Landscaper Launch Eco-Friendly Business After working five full seasons as a professional landscaper, Gerhart E. Arndt IV decided to become his own boss, and, at the same time, give back to the environment. Seeing the environmental benefits from less cars traveling during the pandemic, Arndt, of Conshohocken, used that as a catalyst to launch his eco-friendly landscaping company, Sustainable Land Solutions in August 2020. Through his business, Arndt provides many of the same services as other landscapers: spring cleanups, snow removal, leaf cleanups, flower bed maintenance and lawn maintenance. The big difference between Arndt’s company and traditional landscaping: He uses electric landscaping tools and push mowers instead of their gas-powered counterparts. “I provide a cleaner alternative to conventional landscape gas companies,” Arndt said. “I want to do what I can to heal the world.” In addition, Arndt said customers prefer electric-powered tools. “It’s three to four times quieter,” he said. “They don’t have fumes lingering outside their house. It’s a win-win all around.” The initial investment for electric-powered tools was a bit more, but Arndt said he’s saving more money in the long run and doesn’t have to worry about fluctuating gas prices. Arndt worked part-time in his business last year, but as 2021 began he looked to take it full-time. In January, he began mentoring with Steve Wolfson and Marvin Deitch of SCORE Bucks County, a local chapter of a national nonprofit organization focused on providing guidance to Bucks County and Montgomery County business owners and entrepreneurs throughout every stage of their business venture. Since founding his business Arndt has worked primarily for residential customers in Plymouth Meeting, Lafayette Hill, King of Prussia, and Fort Washington. However, he has set his sights on incorporating more commercial business and using Sustainable Land Solutions as a springboard for franchises. “I knew I needed to get real business advice from people who have done it,” Arndt said of his collaboration with his SCORE mentors. “If I have business questions, I just reach out. It’s very comforting … I’ve got people who’ve got my back.” Wolfson and Deitch, both long-time business owners with expertise in launching a business, helped Arndt find an accountant to ensure his financials were on track. The mentors also helped make sure he had the appropriate insurance and advised him to hire a lawyer as well. Wolfson and Deitch also provided him with business management and customer relations insight, as well as the confidence to take his business full-time in April. “Gerhart is innovative, hardworking, and always looking ahead on how his business can improve,” Wolfson said. “Customers are so impressed with his landscaping skills that he's gained a loyal customer base within select neighborhoods. Gerhart has developed into an entrepreneur with a bright future.” With his first full-time season wrapping up, Arndt is now looking to hire an employee to join him next season. Whether Arndt or his employee provide the landscaping services, Arndt said customers can expect the same level of care and service. “It’s going to be someone in a uniform to provide the same exact quality all the time,” Arndt said. “I want to provide a very professional, quality product that is just better, better for the world, better for consumers.” About SCORE Since 1964, SCORE has helped more than 11 million aspiring entrepreneurs. Each year, SCORE provides small business mentoring and workshops to more than 375,000 new and growing small businesses. With 50 members across the county, SCORE Bucks County provides over 1,500 free mentoring services annually to local small business owners through one-on-one counseling and small business seminars.

Centric Bank Contributes $26,250 Through Pennsylvania’s NAP Program
HARRISBURG, PA (July 26, 2021) – Centric Bank is proud to announce it has made $26,250 in donations for the year 2021 to three eligible neighborhood organizations as part of the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) offered by Pennsylvania’s Department of Community & Economic Development. NAP provides businesses with the opportunity to make a contribution to improve a distressed area and earn a tax credit for the donations. The organizations supported by Centric Bank’s contributions are the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and the Dauphin County Library System in Harrisburg and the Spanish American Civic Association (SACA) in Lancaster. “Giving back to the community is part of our DNA at Centric Bank, and the opportunity to improve the lives of people in distressed neighborhoods through a partnership with these community organizations, while benefiting from the financial incentives of the Neighborhood Assistance Program is a win-win arrangement.” says Patricia A. Husic, President and CEO. The donation to Central Pennsylvania Food Bank will help provide more than 120,000 meals to those working hard to get back on their feet in the wake of the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The money will also be used to help the Food Bank better meet the needs of those disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, including people of color and those residing in Pennsylvania’s most rural communities. The Food Bank has hired an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion consultant to help it better understand and meet the needs of those they serve throughout 27 PA counties. The Dauphin County Library donation will be used to incorporate pandemic response and social justice initiatives into the planned renovation and expansion of the McCormick Riverfront Library complex. The SACA donation will be used to complete new homes for resale to first time homebuyers and to provide employment services and training for residents who are in need of upgrading their language skills, education, and job skills to enable them to qualify for high demand, good paying jobs.

SCORE Helps Interior Designer Make Fresh Start as Wedding Planner If the COVID-19 pandemic had a silver lining, it would be that losing her job as an interior designer motivated Samantha O’Donnell to make a fresh start in the career she always wanted to pursue: Wedding planning. “It’s been crazy,” O’Donnell said of how busy she has been since launching Lavish Haus in January. “It’s because of all the weddings that were cancelled last year.” Her company is based in Center Valley and provides a variety of wedding planning packages and a la carte services to customers in the Lehigh Valley, as well as Bucks County, Philadelphia, and Lancaster. O’Donnell’s service area is within two hours travel time from her home base. O’Donnell has a degree in interior design - where she focused the first 10 years of her career. She sees parallels between the two professions in terms of choosing a color palette, linens, flatware, table settings and “making sure everything is cohesive.” Her 2018 wedding got her thinking hard about transitioning to wedding planning. “I always helped friends with events, and I did my wedding,” she said. “It’s always been something that I loved to do. It’s been something that’s been in the back of my head for a long time.” In October 2020 after being laid off from her interior design job, O’Donnell began mentoring with SCORE Bucks County certified mentors Steve Scialabba and Steve Morello. Initially, she consulted with her mentors about launching a dual wedding planning and interior design business. After talking it through with her mentors and hearing their suggestions to focus on one specialty, O’Donnell decided to do just that. “As soon as I started it and started to evolve it, I realized that I don’t want to do interior design,” she said. “I will put my all into something. It’s either all in or not at all.” O’Donnell has so far delivered three weddings and has signed contracts for 10 more. “I don’t think I realized it would be this great right away,” she said. Her SCORE mentors have helped her stay accountable, gave her the confidence she needed to succeed and assisted her in setting up various business-related tasks, including establishing Lavish Haus as an LLC, setting up a business bank account, insurance, and connecting her with an accountant and an attorney. “Working with SCORE even still during the growing pains is also super important,” O’Donnell said. “They bring up a lot of points that I wouldn’t even think about.” O’Donnell plans to continue her mentoring sessions with Scialabba and Morello for the foreseeable future as she brings on an assistant and looks to grow her business. “When I start to grow, I want to make sure I’m being the best leader possible,” she said.

Cyber Security Integral to Bucks IT Business Data breaches and cyber security threats continue to pose problems for businesses and their customers. Did you know that 60 percent of small companies close within six months of a cyber security attack? Warrington business owner Daniel Weigner, who founded OverclockedIT, LLC two years ago, strives to set up his small business clients with proper security protocols to prevent breaches and other cyber attacks. “We’re really sensitive about making sure there are solutions for protecting your data,” Weigner said. “The biggest misconception out there is that small business owners think they’re not a target.” However, the 2013 Pennsylvania College of Technology graduate said the malicious actors who send viruses, malware and ransomware to computers are “casting a wide net.” That is why he uses his IT and cyber security background to prevent problems before they arise. Cyber security is one of many offerings the full-service information technology company provides to customers in Bucks and Montgomery counties. Weigner and his technician also help clients budget for and implement new computer systems, backup and recover data, streamline cloud-based data protection, and maintain and monitor systems, among other IT-related services. Providing managed information technology services was second nature for Weigner, but drafting a business plan, budgeting for the business, tracking expenses, and finding new customers were all out of his wheelhouse. Soon after launching his business in 2019, Weigner began meeting with SCORE Bucks County mentor Richard Kroger. “He was fundamental at defining the core of my business,” Weigner said of Kroger, whose background includes working more than 30 years in the banking and commercial finance industries. “He was really good at helping me understand financial statements before I got a bookkeeper.” Weigner found invaluable expertise in his sessions with Kroger. SCORE mentors are former/current business owners, or executives offering no-cost services at every stage of a business. “He’s been able to grow his business and stay focused on its operation,” Kroger said. “Dan is very knowledgeable, hardworking, and diligent about doing his best to meet his customers’ needs.” While OverclockedIT does provide emergency fixes for computer crashes, data loss, breaches, and other catastrophic events, Weigner stresses the importance of building relationships with his customers. “We’re not trying to be a company that just fixes your computers, and you don’t hear from us until you have another problem,” Weigner said, adding that his company offers monthly services. “We want to be your partner.
