January 17, 2023 – The team at Union County Savings Bank has launched a new tradition as part of its community outreach efforts, delivering lunch from Jersey Mike’s to first responders across Union County.
Already, the bank has visited firehouses and police stations in Elizabeth and Cranford with boxes of delicious sandwiches for lunch.
The donations started late in 2022 and have continued into the new year. The most recent stop was last week at the Cranford Police Station.
“As a community bank, we get to know the people who come into our branches and we care about their safety. We’re always looking for ways to thank the first responders who do so much to protect our communities,” said Lucy Amicucci, Chief Community Investment Officer at the bank.
Union County Savings Bank, which marks its 140th birthday this October, continually finds ways to give back to the community and celebrate the work being done in Elizabeth, the county seat and where it is headquartered. The bank also keeps low-to-moderate-income families at the heart of its mission.
This holiday season, bank officials worked alongside Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage and the United Way of Greater Union County to participate in its Season of Caring.
In addition, the bank’s charitable foundation recently donated $1,000 to the New Jersey Bankers Association’s 1 Million Meals Campaign. The campaign aims to raise $70,000 every year for the next five years, providing a total of 1 million meals to feed hungry seniors, parents, and children across the state.
Union County Savings Bank was founded in 1883 and is the only bank headquartered in Elizabeth. It has two branches in Elizabeth and one each in Union Township and Cranford. It is widely known for its great CD and loan rates and branches that take pride in serving the community and its many long-time customers.
