Manasquan Bank recently announced the successful completion of its 3rd Annual ‘Days of Giving’ donation program, which received substantial support from the bank’s patrons in Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean counties and helped raise over $10,000 for 10 charities.
The bank encouraged clients and non-clients to visit one of its 15 branch locations during the five-day event to exchange their loose coins free of charge. The bank matched up to 15% of each transaction total, while participants kept their entire redemption amount. Participants also had the option to donate all or a portion of their counted coins or make a separate monetary donation.
“Manasquan Bank has always been committed to empowering the communities we serve, and we take great pride in the impact we’ve made over the years,” said James Vaccaro, Chair, president and CEO of Manasquan Bank. “We remain steadfast in our mission to support the growth and success of individuals, families, businesses, and nonprofit organizations who provide support to various societal needs.
“We look forward to continuing to make a positive difference in our communities through our annual Days of Giving events,” Vaccaro said.
The Days of Giving program was introduced in 2021 as an opportunity to build a stronger community by inviting those who share the bank’s passion to participate. It is typically held during the week leading up to Community Day, an annual event that began in 2014 as a celebration of Manasquan Bank’s 140th anniversary and has continued every year since.
This year, Community Day was postponed for the first time in 10 years due to inclement weather and will now take place on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Squan Plaza in downtown Manasquan.
The Manasquan Bank’s Charitable Foundation has decided to donate the proceeds of the fundraiser, which was held from Sept. 18-22, to the following 10 nonprofit organizations:
- Bridging the Gap for Veterans
