NVE Bank coordinated a Thanksgiving food drive during the month of November to benefit the families who rely upon the Office of Concern Food Pantry located at St. Cecilia’s church in Englewood. Through donations by staff and customers, NVE was able to donate over 75 bags of food to the pantry, whose volunteer staff supply weekly groceries to over 800 families in Englewood and surrounding communities. Staff members also volunteered at the Pantry, distributing turkeys to needy families in the days prior to Thanksgiving.
“As a Mutual Bank, NVE has deep roots within the towns we serve and is committed to ensuring that our communities remain healthy and strong”, commented Robert Rey, President and CEO of NVE Bank. “The volunteers who staff the Office of Concern Food Pantry are true heroes who work year round to help those in need. NVE Bank was honored to be part of their efforts this Thanksgiving.”
The Office of Concern Food Pantry is dedicated to helping the needy of any religion, race or culture. Run entirely by volunteers, it is the largest single location food pantry in Bergen County and is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. To donate, volunteer or to receive help, visit the pantry at 55 West Demarest Avenue in Englewood, NJ or call 201-568-1465.
