Staff and members of Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union donated backpacks and school supplies to the Lower Township School District for the 2021-2022 school year.
Staff from the Lower Township School District expressed their thanks and gratitude to the credit union for their continued support of the students in the community and for their generous donation of white boards, masks, and many other school supplies.
Credit Union CEO Jim Burns said, "As students return to school during these unpredictable times, contributions such as school supplies make an incredible difference in the lives of students and their families. It is vitally important to give children the supplies they need to be successful, and we thank our members for their generosity in assisting those who need it the most.”
Backpacks and school supplies were collected at the credit union’s offices in Galloway, Rio Grande, Hammonton and Northfield.
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!
