CRANFORD — Columbia Bank, through their Columbia Bank Foundation, recently presented a $10,000 community grant to The Arc of Union County. The grant will be used to purchase new technology, including iPads, computers and whiteboards, for their Bright Beginnings Child Development Center in Cranford, an enhanced learning experience designed to maximize all areas of childhood development.

“We are extremely pleased to assist The Arc of Union County with their mission to help challenged individuals from our local communities,” said Thomas Kemly, President and CEO of Columbia Bank. “As a true community bank, Team Columbia remains committed to helping local charitable organizations make a difference in people’s lives.”

Created to serve the needs of local communities, the Columbia Bank Foundation provides grants and contributions to organizations recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Columbia Bank Foundation actively seeks to provide support in four major areas: affordable housing programs, community investment and economic development opportunities, financial literacy and educational opportunities, and health and human services. Special consideration is always given to programs that provide a measurable community impact.
