Habitat for Humanity

Whether spring, summer, winter or fall, Peapack-Gladstone Bank volunteers donate their time and service to Morris, Raritan Valley and Newark & Greater Elizabeth Habitat for Humanity at their build sites located throughout New Jersey, making strides in providing decent, safe and affordable housing to residents in need. The Bank’s presence has become a welcome and familiar sight on build sites, and employee volunteers have a reputation for hard work, dedication and perseverance in accomplishing any task presented. In 2016, Peapack-Gladstone Bank Habitat volunteers rolled up their sleeves painting, landscaping, installing dry wall and ceramic tile flooring, framing and even digging foundations with pick and shovel! No matter what the task or weather, Peapack-Gladstone Bank proudly contributes its time and financial support in helping families realize the dream of homeownership.

St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center

Peapack-Gladstone Bank takes time to give back to the animals that give us so much. Running a pet supply drive at all of its locations, the Bank collected food, bedding and toys to support St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center. Known nationally for a variety of community services which include pet adoption, professional education and training, a pet pantry for those without the financial means to provide food for their pets, and a low-cost spay/neuter program, St. Hubert’s mission is to engage communities in protecting animals in New Jersey and beyond. Delivering truckloads of donations, Bank volunteers arrived at St. Hubert’s and assisted in sorting and shelving supplies, groundskeeping and pet visitation. Peapack-Gladstone Bank joins St. Hubert’s in supporting the human-animal bond and fostering an environment in which people respect all living creatures.
