Tinton Falls, N.J. – United Teletech Financial (UTF) and its members donated $5,000 to the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties in support of their efforts to feed those in need. Donations were submitted by members when they took part in UTF’s “Skip A Payment” program, which allowed members to defer a loan payment during the holiday season. That sum was then augmented by a donation from UTF.
