EDISON — Unity Bank and its employees have donated a total of $15,000 to 15 food pantries in Central Jersey, including one in Edison, and Easton, Pennsylvania.
The St. James Food Pantry & Soup Kitchen received $1,000 from the Edison branch.
The funds were donated by Unity Bank employees and matched by the bank as part of a special holiday community service project.
“As a community bank, it is our responsibility to serve those in need in the towns and neighborhoods where we have branches,” said Unity Bank President and CEO James A. Hughes. “We are all so busy these days that it is easy to forget there are many people who are struggling to make ends meet so I am very proud of Unity Bank’s employees for their generosity. The food pantry drive is just another way that Unity Bank and our employees show that we are committed to serving our communities.”
