As the PIBank (Pacific International Bank), also known as the first community bank established by the Korean Americans in Washington, celebrates its tenth year anniversary, the board members decided to thank the community through a stronger partnership with the Dale Turner Y

In the previous years, PIBank and the board members had supported and volunteered with predominantly Korean American organizations. However, PIBank board members wanted to support the great mission of the Dale Turner for providing services to help the local community in Shoreline. 

PIBank has a branch in North Seattle and Lynnwood, as well as two others in the south end. 

The Dale Turner YMCA has supported the Shoreline community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. 
"Through the free summer lunch program and low cost childcare, the Y is providing support that the schools are not able to fulfill," said Shoreline School District Parent Academic Liaison. 
However, with increased need for financial assistance by its members, the community and the local businesses really need to step up. 
"PIBank has set a fine example and the Y is nurturing new relationships," said a board member of the Y.
