Bank Foundation Donates To New Jersey Storytelling Series

NEW BRUNSWICK – The Provident Bank Foundation recently awarded The State Theatre Regional Arts Center in New Brunswick with a $10,000 grant – the final installment of a three-year, $30,000 pledge – to support its Milk & Cookies series.

“The Provident Bank Foundation is happy to support this program because it gives children the opportunity to participate in something that is both informative and entertaining,” said Kendall Warsaw, executive director of The Provident Bank Foundation.


Milk & Cookies is a free, interactive storytelling experience for children ages three through eight and their parents or guardians. Filled with puppetry, music and more, Milk & Cookies invites young people to discover the joy of watching and interacting with the arts, all while enjoying an afternoon snack.

Milk & Cookies takes place on three select Saturdays beginning next month at 10 a.m. and noon. The upcoming series is slated to start on Oct. 2, with presenter Gerald Fierst and “Pumpkin Tales,” and additional performances will take place on Nov. 6 and Dec. 11.

“We are so grateful to The Provident Bank Foundation for its continued support of Milk & Cookies. This is a valuable program that we are pleased to offer local children who will not only learn, but will have fun, too,” said Kelly Blithe, director of public relations for the State Theatre.

Space for the Milk & Cookies series is limited and advance registration is recommended. To register, contact Jennifer Cunha, education assistant at 1-732-246-7469, ext. 545 or
