Companies That Care: Supporting the Homeless
February 29th, 2016
In partner with Habitat for Humanity of Paterson, twenty dedicated Wells Fargo Employees rolled up their sleeves to refurbish two single-family homes in Paterson, N.J. Employees constructed two walls, doors, and helped install windows in the homes, logging close to 100 volunteer hours. Upon completion, the team additionally presented Habitat for Humanity with a $15,000 donation to be used toward any additional repairs on the homes.
Middlesex Water Company:
In Middlesex County, people with moderate income are struggling to find a decent place to live. Middlesex Water Company (MWC) employees took a hands on approach to helping their local community. Though it’s MWCares “in service” days program employee volunteers, decked in hard hats and work gloves, partnered with Habitat for Humanity on several occasions to help make having a home a reality for a future Perth Amboy homeowner.
Connell Foley values its commitment to supporting organizations that serve the most at-need members of the community. Its long standing relationship with Rebuilding Together Jersey City, a local chapter of a national non-profit that revitalizes houses and communities, is just one example. This year, Connell Foley staff volunteers worked alongside Rebuilding Together Jersey City during its “Annual Rebuilding Day” to refurbish several homes and community centers across the city.
Peapack Gladstone Bank:
Peapack-Gladstone Bank believes in the importance of contributing to society and improving lives through partnerships with local organizations and successful engagement in community service. Employees volunteer feeding the hungry at the Morristown Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center, building homes for Raritan Valley and Morris County Habitat for Humanity, harvesting crops with America’s Grow-a-Row to support New Jersey food banks, and much more. No matter how it shows support, Peapack-Gladstone Bank’s ultimate goal is to give back and make a difference.
