The Bank donated $5 to the nonprofit for every customer that enrolled to receive eStatements
Oak Ridge, N.J. – March 28, 2019 – Lakeland Bank recently presented a donation to the United Way of Northern New Jersey as a result of an eStatement Enrollment Campaign the Bank hosted in December 2018.
“The eStatement Campaign was designed to encourage our customers to sign up to receive their monthly statements electronically,” said Ellen Lalwani, EVP, Chief Retail Officer. “To boost participation, we made a commitment to donate $5 to the United Way of Northern NJ for every customer that enrolled for eStatements during the specified period and we are pleased to announce 267 customers made the switch.”
Ray Cordts, SVP, Business Development at Lakeland Bank presented the donation of $1,335.00 to Bonnie O’Neill, Business Integration and Sean Hyland, Community Impact Coordinator at the United Way office in Newton. The donation will go to support ALICE programming. ALICE, an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, is a new way of defining and understanding the struggles of households that earn above the Federal Poverty Level, but not enough to afford a bare-bones household budget.
