For the 24th consecutive year, The Provident Bank supported the revitalization of Jersey City by volunteering time through Rebuilding Together, a leading national nonprofit in safe and healthy housing.
More than 16 bank employees and their families participated in the Sacred Heart School renovation which included painting hallways and stair railings, and assisting skilled trade workers as they replaced kitchen cabinets, countertops and entry stair treads.
“One of the incredible parts of volunteering with Rebuilding Together is that you see the tangible progress throughout the day,” said Monte Hoagland, assistant controller, Provident Bank. “But it’s about more than the visible progress. Rebuilding Together’s mission aligns with ours in that the organization sets out to better the communities in which they serve.
Rebuilding Together aims to preserve and revitalize houses and communities to assure that low income homeowners, from the elderly to disabled families with children, live in warmth, safety and independence. Typically, employees assist in home renovations but this year the bank teamed up with skilled trades from a local union to complete renovations to the school.
The Jersey City Chapter of Rebuilding Together is one of the 245 nation-wide affiliates of the largest, non-sectarian, nonprofit, home rehabilitation organizations in the United States. The all-volunteer organization works in collaboration with communities and local business to rehabilitate owner-occupied, low-income homes.
