RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Boiling Springs Savings Bank in Rutherford was named a "Champion of Good Works'' by the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ) at its recent Chairman's Reception.
Boiling Springs was recognized for launching the American Bankers Association Bank Teller Certificate Program at Oasis, a Haven for Women and Children, located in Paterson.
The certificate program was a culmination of volunteer efforts by First Vice President and Branch Coordinator, Theresa O’Keefe and First Vice President and Marketing & Sales Manager, Debra Cannariato. The program incorporates eight topics along with guest lectures from bankers in the community and visits to local branches.
More than 250 business executives attended the gala reception at the Stony Hill Inn in Hackensack. Martin Kafafian, Chairman of the CIANJ Board of Directors, presented trophies to 33 businesses.
"For most of these companies their donations, kindness and community outreach are part of their corporate culture -- their mission," said Kafafian said in a statement."The public at large is often unaware of the magnitude and scope of the good works. This reception is our way of shining a spotlight on "Companies that Care."
CIANJ is a statewide business advocacy organization based in Paramus that represents more than 900 member companies from every business sector.
