From March 11 through April 15, The Provident Bank is partnering with Boys & Girls Club of Perth Amboy (BGCPA), and collecting donations in support of the first “Count 4 Kids” campaign. The month-long program is part of the larger initiative “Project Learn,” which helps drive and enhance academic success among students by providing daily homework assistance, individual and small-group tutoring, as well as high-yield learning activities for kids.
Established in January 2007 as a subsidiary of the Jewish Renaissance Foundation (JRF), the Boys & Girls Club of Perth Amboy operates as a 'safe haven' where youth can grow and develop in a constructive environment under the care of nurturing adults. The Boys & Girls Club of Perth Amboy is part of a nationwide affiliation of local, autonomous organizations and Boys & Girls Clubs of America working to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders.
Since 2008, Provident Bank has played an integral role in BGCPA and JRF’s growth and development.
