Sun contributes to more than 400 non-profit organizations supporting arts and culture, community service, economic development, education and health and social services.
Sun employees continually donate their personal time – approximately 2,000 hours of service annually – by participating in the bank’s annual “Banking on Our Communities Day”, where more than 500 employee volunteers work on more than 40 different projects at various non-profit organizations throughout New Jersey. Sun is also proud to participate in fundraising efforts to support the programs and services of United Ways across New Jersey. Just this past year, we raised more than $120,000 through anemployee and corporate fundraising campaign.
The Company was also honored in 2011 with an Economic Development Award by the Gloucester Township Economic Development Corporation. Sun was recognized for the development of the new environmentally-friendly Glendora branch and community beautification efforts.
Sun continues to maintain a laser-like focus on our strategic goals and continue to take the steps necessary to strengthen the balance sheet, grow our wholesale and consumer businesses and enhance our core capabilities. We have a strong capital position, and we are well positioned to maintain our positive asset quality and operating trends. We are optimistic that our progress will continue to fuel positive growth, as we work towards our goal of becoming the dominant New Jersey-based bank in the markets we serve.
