Atlantic Stewardship Bank is once again collecting new, unwrapped gifts for children at each of its 12 conveniently located branches through its Annual Wish Tree Program. Each of the bank’s branches will be displaying a Christmas tree decorated with ornaments and gift tags for the collection beginning on Saturday, December 1st and running through Friday, December 21st.
Both customers and ASB Associates are encouraged to take a tag and an ornament from the tree and return a new, unwrapped gift suitable for a child from newborn to age 16. The gifts will be presented to local charitable organizations to distribute to children in need this Christmas. The organizations include Passaic County Casa for Children, New City Kids, Oasis – A Haven for Women and Children, New Hope Community Ministries, CUMAC, Harvest Outreach Ministries, Family Promise of Morris County and Westwood Cares.
“We are extremely grateful and blessed,” said Paul Van Ostenbridge, President and Chief Executive Officer at Atlantic Stewardship Bank. “As part of our Tithing Program as well as our mission to share, we are committed to making a difference in the lives of those that need our help throughout the year and especially during the Christmas season.”
