Souderton, Pa., August 30, 2021: Univest Financial has stepped forward as a major sponsor for the extensive, six-year renovation and beautification project being completed at Souderton Community Park by the Souderton-Telford Rotary Club and Souderton Borough. Planned upgrades include an adult fitness area and two adjacent playground areas. Univest has committed to donating $100,000 and will serve as the naming sponsor for the playground area for ages 5-12.
Additional renovations, some of which are already in-progress, include the bandshell remodeling and technological improvements, new kitchen and restroom facilities, expanded paved parking, improved lighting, and art walkways.
"We couldn’t be more excited to see Univest come forward as the first major sponsor for the Souderton Community Park. A project of this scope requires support from the community and there have been many who have and are supporters of this project, but Univest is our first major, naming sponsor," said Leon Moyer, Souderton-Telford Rotary and chair of the Park Renovation Committee. "We are hoping that other community businesses will follow the lead of Univest and get involved in this exciting project. The community park is truly one of the centerpieces of this town and a gathering place in our community. With the plans we have in place it will become even more used by Souderton and the surrounding communities."
Jeff Schweitzer, president and CEO of Univest, said, "Univest was founded in Souderton in 1876 so we are especially excited to be serving as a sponsor for the renovations at Souderton Community Park. Making financial contributions to give back to the communities we serve and make them better places to live, work and play is one way we live out our core value of community. We look forward to enjoying the park’s renovations and thank Souderton Borough and Souderton-Telford Rotary for their hard work and dedication to our hometown."
