Several Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Somerset non-profit organizations are recipients of the COVID-19 Emergency Response Grant through The Provident Bank Foundation (PBF).

Each non-profit was awarded $5,000 grants in order for the organizations to continue to serve their respective communities with essential services.

The non-profit organizations include Jewish Family Services of Middlesex County, the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Foundation Inc. in Middlesex County, Monmouth Medical Center Foundation, Move For Hunger and Visiting Nurse Association Health Group of New Jersey in Monmouth County, Ocean Medical Center Foundation in Ocean County and Adult Day Center of Somerset County.

Organizations receiving grants span 12 counties in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and cover healthcare, shelter, food, senior and behavioral services.

“Helping organizations and ensuring their staff members have the tools to continue operating during this difficult time is our main priority right now,” said Samantha Plotino, executive director of PBF. “It has never been more important to offer support to local organizations that are providing critical services to our community.”

The Provident Bank Foundation was established in 2003 by Provident Bank to enhance the quality of life in the region through support of not-for-profit groups, institutions, schools and other 501(c)(3) organizations that provide services in communities served by the Bank. Since inception, the foundation has granted more than $25 million to not-for-profit organizations and institutions working toward stronger communities.
