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 Federal Credit Union’s Social Action Committee coordinated a Jean Friday Staff Campaign that took place during the last quarter of 2019. The objective of the campaign was to raise money for the Egg Harbor Township VFW. The staff raised $500 as a result of this fundraiser. All five branches were involved in this great fundraiser, and after it was all said and done, a $500 check was donated to this amazing local organization.
The VFW makes it their goal to promote comradery and provide support for veterans of overseas conflicts. In addition, they also assist the active military and their local communities. Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union could not be happier to support an organization in our community whose main core value is to always put their members first, just like their credit union.
