RSI Bank supports "Have-A-Heart" Food Drive Challenge with $2,140 donation

RSI Bank recently made a donation of $2,140 to the “Have-A-Heart” Food Drive Challenge, organized by the Township of Woodbridge. The food drive asks local businesses to pledge donations of 214 pounds of canned or boxed food, or $214, to help feed less fortunate families.

The food drive was coordinated by Peter Barcellona, chairman of the We Feed Woodbridge Food Bank Committee. Through the Woodbridge Department of Health and Human Services, We Feed Woodbridge works with 11 food pantries within Woodbridge Township.

Mr. Barcellona has a long history with We Feed, having founded the organization in 1992. It started with a network of five food pantries, but has grown to include a total of eleven.  It is estimated that the organization has raised well over 800,000 pounds of food since its start.

Woodbridge Mayor John E. McCormac accepts the donation check from RSI Bank. Standing to the right of Mayor McCormac are Peter Barcellona, Karen Barnes, and Amy Krysienski, RSI Bank's Business Development Officer for the Woodbridge area.
