This holiday season Peapack-Gladstone Bank teamed up once again with the United Way of Northern New Jersey Gifts of the Season holiday drive. By collecting new toys, clothing and books at its Somerset County branches, the Bank supported the United Way’s efforts to provide holiday donations for distribution to local needy families including the elderly, disabled, children and teens. Since purchasing holiday gifts can be a burden for many that are lacking in financial resources, it is not surprising that the items provided by the United Way of Northern New Jersey are often the only presents many low-income residents will receive this holiday season.
The success of any program is dependent upon its volunteers. That is why when the time came to sort and pack donated items, Peapack-Gladstone Bank employees stepped up. On both Monday, December 9 and Wednesday, December 11 Bank employees teamed up to assist at the United Way’s consolidation warehouse to sort, tag and load gift donations for distribution to struggling Somerset County residents.
Through the years Peapack-Gladstone Bank has been dedicated in supporting the communities in which it does business by being proactive in doing their part for those that are less fortunate. The Bank looks forward to continuing its outreach to assist those in need in the New Year and thanks you for your generosity in supporting the United Way of Northern New Jersey!
