Provident Bank is Collecting for Fire Victims

Each of the Provident Bank's Middlesex County branches is accepting donations for victims of recent fires in Woodbridge and Perth Amboy.

  • Metropark branch at 100 Wood Avenue South in Iselin

Items that are particularly desired include new toys, books, games, new sporting equipment and toiletries, including shampoo, bath soap, tooth brushes, toothpaste and other personal care things.
