Columbia Bank Foundation supports our ID program

Many thanks to the Columbia Bank Foundation for its generous donation of $10,000 to support our thriving ID program! And thanks also to bank employees who've lent helping hands at our soup kitchen and remain committed to ongoing volunteer efforts benefiting our mission.

Did you know that in 2021 Franciscan Charities helped more than 500 of our Newark neighbors get documents - birth certificates and photo IDs, for example - that are critical to obtaining basic services like housing, jobs, and Social Security benefits? Under the direction of FC's Dan Ellis, our ID program has become a go-to service in Newark.

Thank you again Columbia Bank Foundation! #columbiabankcares
