Beneficial Bank to collect books to benefit the Drenk Center

Throughout the month of August, all Beneficial Bank locations in New Jersey will collect new and gently used books, which will be donated to the Drenk Center. The books will be given to children, adults, and families served by center.

“On behalf of the children and families we serve everyday, thank you to Beneficial Bank for choosing the Drenk Center as its book drive recipient,” Drenk Center President and CEO Harry Marmorstein said. “With the economic climate and funding restrictions of the last few years, our agency has been forced to scale back on recreational supplies. Thanks to Beneficial Bank and the generosity of the community, we will now be able to provide books to consumers of all ages, offering an important tool in recreation and education, both of which will assist in their road to wellness.”

Beneficial customers and non-customers are encouraged to stop by any of Beneficial’s 60 local offices to donate their new or gently used books. A complete list of Beneficial locations can be found at https://www.thebeneficial.com/locate.asp.
