A volunteer crew of Columbia Bank employees recently teamed up with the Center of United Methodist Aid in the Community (CUMAC) food bank in Paterson to sort and distribute food to needy residents. The CUMAC facilities, located at 223 Ellison Street, feeds over 2,600 community residents per month.
“We are extremely pleased to assist CUMAC with their charitable mission to feed the poor and homeless,” noted Thomas Kemly, Columbia Bank’s President and CEO. “As a true community bank, Team Columbia remains committed to helping local charities make a difference in people’s lives.”
Columbia Bank is a regular supporter of local food banks and feed-the-hungry programs throughout New Jersey and collects food items as part of their annual food collection efforts. The bank was recently honored by The Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ) as “A Champion of Good Works.”
