Lakeland Bank Employees Support The ARC of NJ and SCARC
Donation helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
OAK RIDGE, N.J., October 23, 2012 — Lakeland Bank employees personally donated a total of $2,462 to help support The ARC of NJ and SCARC, Inc. The donations were raised through the company’s monthly “Jeans Day” fundraiser, where employees are permitted to wear jeans on Fridays in exchange for a charitable donation of $10 or more per month.
“Year after year, The ARC of NJ and SCARC are on the list of charities our employees vote to support,” said Thomas Shara, president and CEO. “Given this popular response, both non-profits now have a permanent spot on the list of charities the employees wear jeans for on Fridays.”
A donation of $1,576 was split among The ARC of NJ chapters in Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic, and Warren Counties, and SCARC, Inc. based in Sussex County received $886. Both of these organizations are dedicated to helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Learn more at www.arcnj.org
