CLINTON, NJ - Unity Bank recently raised more than $7,000 in donations for Family Promise of Hunterdon County and Family Promise of Warren County, through its 11th Annual Cruisin’ Bob's Classic Car Show, which drew a record 136 automobiles. The funds were raised through sponsorships, food sales and registration fees with Unity Bank underwriting expenses.

“The community came together for a terrific family day to support two vital service organizations,” said Unity Bank President & CEO James A. Hughes. “We could not have asked for a better response from everyone involved from the car owners to the business community to attendees. A special thank you to our Unity employees who donated many hours of their time for a good cause.”

Family Promise provides services to both help overcome and prevent homelessness through the Interfaith Hospitality Network  – a network of congregations and volunteers who provide overnight/weekend shelter, home-cooked meals, and companionship to families who enter the program. Comprehensive case management, licensed counseling services and a donation program are also available.

Marc and Brook ignored my follow-up report in ...
