CARTERET—The borough has been awarded $25,000 by Investors Savings Bank towards the purchase of a new ambulance, Mayor Dan Reiman and Carteret Fire Chief Brian O’Connor announced Monday. The grant will be provided through the Investors Savings Bank Foundation, which provides funds to local non-profit organizations to improve public resources and programs.
Reiman said that the grant is one of many the borough has received in recent years to bolster the town’s fleet of emergency service vehicles, including a $175,000 foam fire truck received from Kinder Morgan last year.
“This donation is a testament to the value of partnerships that can be formed between a community and the businesses it hosts,” Reiman stated. “This administration has always been proactive in establishing such partnerships, and encouraging a level of community involvement that goes beyond the establishment of jobs and the growth of our commercial tax base.”
Investors Savings Bank has been serving New Jersey residents since 1926 and has $8.7 billion in assets and a network of 66 branches in ten Garden State counties.
“On behalf of my colleagues in the department and the community we proudly serve, we extend our thanks to the Investors Savings Bank Foundation,” said O’Connor, who plans to work with the Mayor’s office and various private and public entities to continue expanding the borough’s emergency service resources.
