PARAMUS, N.J., Aug. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hudson City Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: HCBK), the holding company for Hudson City Savings Bank (the "Bank"), has announced that it will engage in a month long campaign during August 2015 to address seasonal shortages at local area food pantries.  Summer months tend to impact food distribution and resources as children are not receiving meals in school and donation levels decrease.  Working with the Center for Food Action (CFA), a 501(c)3 organization, Hudson City Savings Bank will collect food and monetary donations from our employees and the public in our Bergen and Passaic County branches and Administrative offices. Additionally, Hudson City Savings Bank will provide a can for can match of all food items collected during the campaign, and a dollar for dollar match of all monetary donations made by Hudson City employees.
