Thank you to everyone who helped us collect baby clothing and items to help children and families in need at the Special Care Nursery located at Shore Medical Center in Somers Point. Members, Staff, and their families dropped off handmade blankets and hats, sleep sacks, socks, mittens, and wide variety of clothing, diapers, and more. Jersey Shore FCU CEO Jim Burns stated, "Our incredible members and staff coming together to help support the Special Care Nursery was extraordinary. We are always blown away by our memberships generosity and support.
The Shore Medical Staff was so appreciative of the donations and assured the Jersey Shore team that all of the donated items will be put to use!
During our first quarter candy bar campaign we were able to raise $500.00 for the Funny Farm Animal Sanctuary. The Animal Sanctuary is a wonderful organization that cares for abused and abandoned animals. Founder Laurie Zaleski expressed her gratitude for the donation!
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.
Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union staff participates in quarterly charitable fundraising events to assist children and their families in Atlantic and Cape May counties.
