A reputable organization that services and gives back to the community in many ways

WBA's Community is the people, services and businesses of the Village of Whiting, NJ. Whiting is divided into some 15 distinct housing developments. A majority of our population of some 19,000 residents are retired and living on fixed incomes. Our community also features upscale private developments and residential areas that house blue-collar and white-collar workers, professionals and others.

Whiting also depends almost entirely on volunteers for its Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services, Food Pantry, and a unique all-volunteer organization Somebody C.A.R.E.S. to provide transportation, medical equipment, social services and financial advice to the elderly. Thus our community has a somewhat unique combination of needs.  WBA Members understand these needs and strive to meet them.

Community means everything to Members of the WBA.  First and foremost we are focused on delivering high quality products, exceptional service, value and convenience to residents.  Members also individually support the community in many ways, such as by offering special discounts to seniors and other groups in need, and through charitable activities, volunteering and donations. It's what we do every day.

As an organization the WBA serves the basic needs of our community through food for the hungry, supporting Veterans and Service men and women, and assisting volunteer services organizations. We sponsor charitable events that are meant to energize the community, bring people together, and support local services such as the Whiting Fire Company, the Food Pantry, and local Veterans groups.

Joel Wolf is one of our founding Members, owner of Village Opticians in Whiting for more than 21 years, and an energetic leader in our community programs.

"I believe in this community. I love Whiting and I love what it stands for. I also believe that we need to be partners in this community to succeed and to flourish. We know that a successful and thriving community depends on businesses within the community supporting its people and in-turn the people in the community patronizing their local businesses."

The WBA is committed to serving the Whiting community and to giving back to the Community in many visible and concrete ways, and all of our members truly appreciate your support and patronage.
