May 14th, 2018
This volunteer crew of Columbia Bank employees recently took part in a Newark Habitat for Humanity “Challenge” to help renovate affordable living homes within the Greater Newark area. The Team Columbia volunteers performed various indoor work assignments, including plumbing, tile grouting and general repairs, providing the “elbow grease” necessary to move the construction project along.
“We are extremely pleased to assist Newark Habitat with their charitable mission to create new affordable housing,” said Thomas Kemly, Columbia Bank’s President and CEO. “As a true community bank, Team Columbia remains committed to helping local charities that make a difference in people’s lives.” Since 1993, Columbia has sponsored and provided funding for more than 160 New Jersey habitat home rebuilding projects.
