  • Tools For Schools 2022

    Staff and members of Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union donated notebooks, binders and other school supplies to the Lower Township School District for the 2022-2023 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 each year.

    Credit Union CEO Jim Burns said, "As students return to school this year, these contributions of school supplies make it much easier for them and their families to transition back into the school year. It is extremely important to give children the supplies they need to succeed each day, and we thank our members and staff for their continued 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.

  • Kid-Friendly Food Drive Results

    With the COVID-19 pandemic causing high unemployment in our area resulting in more children facing hunger, our credit union held a Kid-Friendly Food Drive during the months of May and June.  A total of 242 pounds of food was collected for the Community Food Bank of NJ, Southern Branch.  Thank you to our members and staff for your generous donations during this time of need.
