CommUNITY First Day 9.12.23

CommUNITY First Day 2023 – A Smashing Success! 

WaveMakers across the OceanFirst Bank footprint had a great time making an impact at ninety nonprofits on OceanFirst’s annual day of giving back. They even broke a few records! At Move For Hunger, in Neptune Township, WaveMaker volunteers completed a record number of food collection kits and team members from the New York region spent the afternoon at the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum helping to make a record number of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the 9/11 Day of Service. And in Atlantic City, WaveMakers helped provide a much-needed refresh to Salvation’s Army’s signature red-kettle stands just in time for the holiday season!

These projects, along with 87 others, resulted in 2,900 hours of volunteerism valued at more than $100,000. We thank our incredible nonprofit partners for welcoming OceanFirst WaveMaker volunteers into their workplaces. Stay tuned for plans on an even bigger and better 2024 CommUNITY First Day!
