Throughout November, all 23 offices of Amboy Bank will collect food and household items for food banks in their branch area.
Every Amboy office manager has selected a food bank to collect for in their community. In many cases, Amboy has a strong relationship with the organizations, including St. Laurence Food Bank, Lunch Break and Freehold Open Door.
Gregory Scharpf, president and CEO, said, “At Amboy Bank, we are dedicated to helping our local community prosper, and we are proud to lend a helping hand to our neighbors who need it most. Our annual food drive will help to restock the shelves of the food banks in our area.”
Branch locations and details about the food drive can be found at www.AmboyBank.com
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza has plans to open a restaurant at 177 Broad St., Red Bank, during the holiday season. This will mark the second New Jersey restaurant for Artichoke Basille’s Pizza and the 16th location for the entire franchise.
The company-owned Red Bank location will be 1,800 square feet, modeled after the original Artichoke Basille’s Pizza location in New York, and will offer dine-in and takeout.
Due to Red Bank’s rich music and cultural history, Artichoke plans to incorporate tributes to local rock legends from the area, as well. The menu will feature Artichoke’s authentic New York slices and whole pies in eight varieties, including the namesake Artichoke Pie that is made with artichoke hearts, spinach, cream sauce, mozzarella and pecorino romano cheese.
“We are excited to finally bring a second New Jersey location, this time company-owned, of Artichoke Basille’s Pizza to Red Bank,” said Francis Garcia, co-founder and co-owner. “Red Bank has special importance to me because it is where I met and fell in love with my wife. It’s a town with a lot of heart, great nightlife and, we think, will be the perfect community for our next location.”
