JERSEY CITY – The Provident Bank recently collected more than $8,000 in donations for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ) through its Deposit $1 of Hope fundraiser. Collections were held at each of Provident’s 80-plus branches throughout the state.
“One in five New Jersey families struggle with hunger. We are thrilled that we were able to raise a substantial amount for such a worthy cause,” said Jean Quinn, vice president of corporate communications at The Provident Bank. “In these difficult economic times, the Community FoodBank needs our help more than ever, and we could not have done this without the help of the generous residents in the communities we serve.”
For every dollar contributed to the CFBNJ, the organization is able to provide $8 to $11 worth of food and groceries to local food pantries and soup kitchens. With the help of numerous partner organizations, the CFBNJ distributes more than 23 million pounds of food and groceries per year.
