Valley Bank Supports Habitat for Humanity’s 2019 Corporate Challenge

News | 6/24/2019

WAYNE, N.J. – Monday, June 24, 2019- Valley Bank team members volunteered to help build homes in Paterson, New Jersey as part of Paterson Habit for Humanity’s Corporate Challenge. Valley associates volunteered to spend a morning framing, flooring and organizing supplies in two homes in Paterson’s 4th Ward.

Corporate Challenge is a month-long event where corporations in the tri-state area volunteer their employees to Paterson Habitat for Humanity construction sites. For the past 25 years, teams of employees work a half day shift and have lunch (provided by Habitat) where volunteers, families and staff often share their stories and experiences.  In 2018, over 40 companies offered more than 900 of their employees and accepted the challenge raising over $320,000. One hundred percent of funds raised by this event go toward building Paterson Habitat homes.

As the first company to commit to participation in the Corporate Challenge, Valley’s extensive partnership with the Paterson Habitat for Humanity spans 25 years.  During that time, Valley volunteers have helped build almost 70 homes for Paterson residents.
