Manasquan Bank Charitable Foundation, an affiliate of Manasquan Bank, brought local organizations together for its third quarterly Charitable Foundation meeting of 2018. The breakfast event was a chance for community members to learn more about Manasquan Bank’s philosophy for its future success and commitment to its community-based partners. It was also a great opportunity for each organization receiving a foundation grant to tell their story and explain how the new grant will assist in the achievement of their overall mission. The meeting was very collaborative, as participants had the opportunity to interact with James S. Vaccaro, President and CEO of the Bank, and ask questions about the Bank and its service model.
Manasquan Bank’s management team kicked off the morning’s event, where team members provided an overview of the business and cultural opportunities the bank and its Foundation hope to be able to impact during 2019. To support the major initiatives of their non-profit and business partners, the bank plans to “provide the stimulus for growth through its lending, depository and community-based activities,” according to Vaccaro.
Notably, at the breakfast event, those receiving an annual grant from the foundation included The Arc Ocean County Chapter; The Ashley Lauren Foundation; Belmar Arts Council; Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey; Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton (Providence House Domestic Violence Services); Common Ground Inc; CONTACT of Ocean & Monmouth Counties; Henry B. King Medical Brigade; Interfaith Hospitality Network of Ocean County Inc; Just Us Girls; Make-A-Wish New Jersey; MJM Fund; Monmouth Arts; Monmouth Medical Center; Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus; Manasquan Organization of Volunteer Efforts (MOVE); New Jersey Performing Arts Center; POAC Autism Services; Purr’N Pooch Foundation for Animals; Recovery Advocates for the Shore, Inc.
