Peapack-Gladstone Bank Supports Literacy

Reading.  Many consider it a pastime or hobby.  It is also the gateway to a world of knowledge, but the facts on illiteracy in America may surprise you.  The U.S. Department of Education states that approximately 44 million American adults cannot read, and 50 million adults are unable to read at higher than 4th or 5th grade level.  This statistic is staggering; but the fact is, literacy is a learned skill.  Illiteracy is passed down through generations.

Peapack-Gladstone Bank feels we all have a role to play ensuring those who need or wish to improve literacy skills have the opportunity to succeed not only in school, but in life. To provide support for children, teens and adults within our communities, Peapack-Gladstone Bank recently sponsored a Reading Matters Book Drive in conjunction with the United Way of Northern New Jersey. Bank employees and clients donated new and gently used books at their headquarters and bank locations to provide for local needy individuals and organizations.  The response was phenomenal as books and support poured in from throughout the area. To those that contributed, thank you for your generosity. The great success of this book drive was attributed to the efforts of those who have made a difference in our communities – one book at a time!

A Huge Chatham Thank You to Len Resto, the Mayor, Council and DPW, especially Carlos and Stan

April 9, 2018

Dear Editor,


With spring holding off threats of snow, recent memories of the Nor’Easter that paralyzed the region are still engraved in my mind. In the height of the last big storm a 65 foot tall, 2½ foot wide white pine gave way to the heavy snow and landed on the house pulling our power line down, 1700 other Chathamites had lost power and trees were down ...
