NORTHFIELD, N.J. (1/17/13)--Jersey Shore FCU is challenging its membership to save $500,000 in loan interest and fees to help the credit union celebrate its 50th anniversary.
If members reach the $500,000 milestone, the Northfield, N.J., credit union will donate $5,000 to four local charities (The Daily Journal Jan. 16).
Members can take a free five-minute financial checkup to see if they qualify for a lower interest-rate personal or home loan. If they do, they can select a partner charity to receive a donation.
Charities included in the challenge are Atlantic City Rescue Mission, Humane Society of Ocean City, Family Promise of Cape May County and Shore Medical Center Foundation.
Donations will be awarded in three increments: $2,500, $1,000 and $750, with two charities receiving $750.
