Valley National Bank donated more than 200 new toys and over 100 gently used coats to the Holiday Wishlist Program run by the Center of United Methodist Aid to the Community (CUMAC).
The wishlist program tries to make the holiday season brighter for families in need by providing presents for children living in shelters or fighting illness and poverty.
“It is our hope that these generous donations make the holidays warmer and brighter for those that need it most this season,” Dianne Grenz, Valley National Bank executive vice president, said. “We are proud to support CUMAC in their work to change lives for the better and build stronger communities throughout northern New Jersey.”
Paterson-based CUMAC distributed almost 1,000 gifts for children throughout Passaic County last holiday season. Wayne-based Valley National Bank’s employees donated the toys and the coats to support the needy in Paterson.
The toys and coats were delivered to the nonprofit on Tuesday.
