The Township of Union Education Foundation will award ConnectOne Bank its “Community Spirit” Award at the Foundation’s annual spring reception, which will be held on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 from 5-8 pm at the Knights of Columbus, 1034 Jeanette Avenue, Union. This award is given yearly to an individual or group that has given “above and beyond” to help the Township of Union Education Foundation.

ConnectOne has been involved in helping the Township of Union Education Foundation for many years, providing both financial support and advice, all of which have enabled the Township of Union Education Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization to continue to raise funds for creative and innovative educational programs for the children in the public schools of the Township. The Education Foundation has, with the help of ConnectOne Bank, funded over 220 grants and donated over $220,000.00 worth of equipment and materials.

The Spring Reception is open to the public, and the cost for appetizers, dinner, dessert and entertainment is $35.00. Checks may be made payable to TUEF and sent to Susan Lipstein, 2569 Jackson Ave., Union, NJ 07083. For further information, call 908-851-9869 or go to our web site at
