- DIGITAL BANKING
Northfield Bank recently partnered with Clean Ocean Action (COA) and participated in a beach clean-up in Sandy Hook, NJ. Individuals who volunteered were from a variety of different departments across the Bank.
Volunteers were responsible for cleaning up and removing all unsightly and harmful debris on the designated beach and marsh area. Participants collected and recorded valuable data about debris, which will then be presented in annual reports from COA and used to advance federal, state, and local programs to reduce litter. In total, 1,302 pieces of debris were collected, of that 1,140 pieces were composed of plastic.
Clean Ocean Action is a leading national and regional voice working to protect waterways using science, law, research, education, and citizen action. To learn more about ways to protect our waterways or to volunteer at a beach near you; please visit http://www.cleanoceanaction.org
