Margate, NJ (September 16, 2020) – Republic Bank embraced a community partnership with Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS) by presenting the organization with a $3,000 donation. The funds will benefit agency programs that provide community residents with information and guidance to achieve fiscal responsibility and stability.

“We are grateful to partner with Republic Bank and appreciate their generous contribution,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer. “It’s imperative to implement programs which support fiscal responsibility such as our vocational, mental health and supportive housing services, especially in today’s economic climate.”

With nearly 48,000 people in Atlantic and Cape May Counties – enough to fill Boardwalk Hall more than three times – living below the poverty line, the donation will support services to assist this segment of our population. From the agency’s Food Pantry to supportive housing, vocational assistance and counseling, many of these clients who are homeless, unemployed or underemployed turn to JFS for assistance.

“We are proud to do our part to support an organization like JFS, doing good to help those struggling during this challenging time,” said Leslie DiLuigi, Senior Vice President and Retail Market Manager at Republic Bank. “Providing assistance to the communities we serve at a grassroots level is a key pillar of what we stand for. Making contributions that our customers and our neighbors can benefit from is where we will continually focus our efforts.”

Republic Bank continues to expand its footprint throughout Philadelphia, Southern New Jersey and New York City as part of its “The Power of Red is Back” growth plan. Republic Bank’s 31 stores are open seven days a week, 361 days a year, with extended lobby and drive-thru hours, providing customers incredible convenience and flexibility.

The bank also offers absolutely free checking, ATM/Debit cards and credit cards issued on the spot and access to more than 55,000 surcharge free ATMs worldwide via the Allpoint network.
