Staff from all five credit union branches located in Northfield, Galloway, Hamilton Mall, Rio Grande and the William J. Hughes Technical Center graciously participate in quarterly fundraising opportunities by wearing jeans to work on “Jean Fridays”.  Each staff member gives a small donation to support children and their families who are struggling in the communities the credit union serves.

Credit Union CEO Jim Burns expressed, “In today’s economic times, contributions such as proceeds from “Jean Fridays” makes an incredible difference in helping organizations like the Alcove Center that provide a safe and supportive atmosphere for families to discuss their pain and grief.  In addition, the Alcove Center transforms that grief and loss into hope and healing doing so at no cost to the children and their families who attend the bereavement programs.”

The Alcove Center for Grieving Children & Families, Executive Director/Founder Mindy Shemtov stated, “It is vitally important to provide support programs so that every parent who is struggling with how to help their child through a loss, always has a place to turn. We are grateful for the staff at Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union for generously raising $600 by wearing jeans to work on Friday’s from January through March 2019.  This outpouring of love enables the Alcove Center to continue its mission in bereavement support services for children and their families.”

Jersey Shore FCU serves those who live, work, worship, and volunteer in Atlantic and Cape May County, NJ.
