Valley National Bank Donates Soccer Balls to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Clifton, Passaic, and Paterson, New Jersey



WAYNE, N.J. – Monday, June 25 2018-  As part of Valley National Bank’s new “Pop-Up Moments,” Valley associates donated 100 soccer balls per location to the Clifton, Passaic, and Paterson Boys and Girls Clubs of New Jersey.

“Donating to influential organizations within the community is part of who we are,” remarked Dianne Grenz, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Consumer Banking Officer at Valley National Bank. “The Boys and Girls Clubs of New Jersey supports the community’s youth, providing them with a safe place to learn and grow.”

All three Boys and Girls Clubs foster a safe, supportive environment for children. The clubs provide children with encouraging relationships and mentors, enabling them to become caring and responsible citizens of society. While the clubs are a fun and social place, they also serve as a place for children to participate in programs and activities that work to satisfy their ultimate well-being.

“Through our donation Valley is not only showing our support for all the great things this organization does for our youth, but also contributing to their mission statement,” Grenz continued.

Pop Up Moments are events designed to randomly surprise individuals and groups who make a positive difference in the local community. Over the next few months, Valley will continue to schedule these events to celebrate some of the great things that are happening in the local neighborhoods throughout New Jersey, New York, Florida and Alabama.
