Member News — Columbia Bank “Teams Up” with Eva’s Village Hot Meal Program
August 6th, 2018
This volunteer crew of Columbia Bank employees recently teamed up with Eva’s Village in Paterson to help feed poor and homeless individuals within the greater Paterson area. Throughout their lunchtime shift, the Columbia volunteers served about 300 hot meals.
“We are extremely pleased to support Eva’s Village and their charitable mission to feed our poor and homeless neighbors,” said 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 Eva’s Village, having issued recent community grants to purchase chairs and tables for their dining room and a new transport van for their Culinary Arts program, a vocational program that provides job training and placement in the food service industry for unemployed adults.
