BAYONNE, NJ - The Hudson County Bar Foundation, the non-profit organization affiliated with the Hudson County Bar Association, has donated $2,188 to the Bayonne Food Bank, Mayor Jimmy Davis said.
“The coronavirus and the 2020 recession have caused unemployment and a growing need for programs to help people. As a result, many local residents need help getting enough food for their families,” Davis said, crediting City Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski and City Business Administrator Melissa Mathews for organizing the Bayonne Food Bank in coordination with the Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation (BEOF). “Thanks to the Hudson County Bar Foundation, the Bayonne Food Bank will be able to feed more people in need.”
In addition to charitable giving The Hudson County Bar Foundation, established in 1962, also hosts activities including educational programs for lawyers and Law Day programs for the public, and provides scholarships for students in law school.
The Executive Director of both the Hudson County Bar Association and the Hudson County Bar Foundation is Bayonne resident Lisa Burke.
