JERSEY CITY, NJ June 12, 2012 – Pieces of the historical puzzle that bind The Provident Bank and the City of Jersey City now become part of the Jersey City Free Public Library, for their preservation and for all to see.
All items being donated to the New Jersey Room of the Jersey City Free Public Library are property of The Provident Bank and were accumulated in the course of its 173 years of banking.
“Provident and Jersey City share more than a connection with Dudley Gregory, Provident’s first acting president and Jersey City’s first mayor. The Provident Bank shares a rich history with the City of Jersey City: its businesses, its peoples, its successes and its challenges. We take pride in this shared history, and we are delighted that we can share our treasure trove of historical information with the residents of Jersey City through the Jersey City Public Library,” said Jean Quinn, vice president, public relations, The Provident Bank.
Also representing The Provident was Nicholas Cavaluzzi, vice president and area manager, Jersey City.
