We joined together with other credit unions in southern New Jersey to collect donations of Kid-Friendly Food. When the school year ends, some children no longer have access to nutritious food. To combat this problem that is most prevalent in southern New Jersey, a Kid-Friendly Food Drive was held throughout May and June.

During each quarter of the year we sell candy bars in all of our branches to raise money for a local charity. The $500 proceeds from this first quarter went to the Faces 4 Autism organization. They provide autism education and resources to families and educators in the South Jersey area. They are dedicated to improving the lives of individuals on the spectrum through social opportunities and programs that will foster self-advocacy, independence, and dignity. We are proud to support such a worthy organization in our community.

Our Social Action Committee raised money for the Egg Harbor Township VFW through donations made by staff to wear jeans on Fridays.
All five branches were involved in this great fundraiser for three months, and after it was all said and done, a $600 check was donated to this amazing local organization.
Promoting civic responsibility, patriotism, and supporting local programs in our community are just a few of the many ways the VFW gives back. Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union could not be happier to support an organization whose main core value is to always put their members and community first, just like our credit union.
