NVE News: NVE Bank made a $1,000 donation to the Office of Concern Food Pantry at St. Cecilia Church in Englewood to fund the Pantry’s Product Protection initiative.   The donation will cover the cost of purchasing durable storage containers to ensure that the food products collected through donations are adequately stored and protected against heat and moisture.

“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.  “Through the years we have been fortunate to partner with the Office of Concern on food drive initiatives, and our staff members volunteer every Thanksgiving at the Pantry.   So we have witnessed firsthand the amazing work that these dedicated volunteers do to assist our neighbors in need.  We are grateful to have been able to purchase a new van for them several years ago, and are proud to further assist their efforts to help others through funding Project Product Protection.”

The Office of Concern Food Pantry, located at 55 West Demarest Avenue in Englewood,  is one of northern New Jersey’s largest food banks and is staffed solely by volunteers.  Since 1980, the Pantry has operated with the mission of supplying food and essential items to support the needs of retirees, the working poor and those struggling to feed babies and small children.  Their client base currently numbers in excess of 900 families and continues to rise.  To donate, volunteer or receive help, call 201-568-1465 or email officeofconcern@verizon.net.
