  • NICU Donation To Shore Medical 2021

    Thank you to everyone who helped us collect baby clothing to help children and families in need at the Special Care Nursery located at Shore Medical Center in Somers Point. Staff and their families, along with our members, dropped off handmade blankets and hats, sleep sacks, socks, mittens, and wide variety of clothing. Unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic we were unable to restart our clothing drive but we still collected two large boxes of baby items!

    Jersey Shore FCU CEO Jim Burns sated "Although our NICU Clothing Drive was only able to run for a few weeks we are still overwhelmed by the support from our members and staff. We know these donations will go a long way in helping families and babies in need."

  • Kid-Friendly Food Drive 2020

    We joined together with other credit unions in southern New Jersey to collect donations of Kid-Friendly Food. The COVID-19 pandemic has left more children in our community facing hunger. To combat this problem a Kid-Friendly Food Drive was held throughout June and July.

    Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union donated 650 pounds of Kid-Friendly Food to the Community Food Bank of NJ Southern Branch. President/CEO James Burns stated, "In our community we serve, Atlantic and Cape May County, we have some of the highest rates of child food insecurity as families lack the resources to purchase nutritious food.  We’re grateful to our members, staff, and volunteers that generously donated to help fill this gap” .
