Volunteering at Eva's Village

Recently serving as Eva’s Village volunteers, Amboy Bank employees helped to prepare the Community Kitchen, serve lunch, and cleanup after meal service. The mission of Eva’s Village is to provide care and support for people who are struggling with poverty, hunger, homelessness and addiction. Their community of supportive services, based in Paterson, includes food, shelter, addiction and mental health treatment, childcare, job training, medical and dental care, and housing.

“Eva’s Village is truly making a difference in the society, one community at a time. They have been serving 3 meals per day to 200-300 people per day for the last 36 years. The facility is clean, and the food is prepared and served hot to the guests on stoneware plates. The guests appeared to be very thankful, and for some, that may be their only meal of the day. It is hard to believe that hunger and poverty lie so close to home,” said Amboy Bank employee, Asifa Sayed.
