Meadowlands area YMCA receives $250,000 grant from Kearny Bank
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — In support of a substantial Meadowlands Area YMCA fundraising campaign, Fairfield-based Kearny Bank is contributing a $250,000 grant, to be disbursed during a five-year period. As with all donations received during the YMCA’s ongoing “Drive to $1 million” effort, the Kearny Bank funds will finance programs and make possible the acquisition of equipment. Overall, the YMCA’s fundraising campaign is an effort to address multiple community needs identified since the May 2017 grand opening of its 83,000 s/f facility in East Rutherford. These include establishment of an Exergame Room, one of many offerings intended to help children utilize play to incorporate healthy lifestyle choices into their everyday routines.
