Planting Friendship

Several Peapack-Gladstone Bank volunteers  brought clay pots, soil, and pansies to help adult residents at Matheny Center use their creativity to decorate the pots and plant their own flowers. Not only were the flowers blooming, but the room was filled with blossoming smiles as the volunteers and Matheny adults enjoyed the camaraderie and opportunity to make new friends.
