Financial Resources FCU Foundation Raises $20,000 for Healing the Children New Jersey and $2,000 for Foster and Adoptive Family Services Foundation
Bridgewater, NJ – Financial Resources FCU Foundation is pleased to announce that its annual charity event held on May 7, 2012 at The Palace at Somerset Park raised $20,000 to benefit Healing the Children New Jersey and $2,000 to support Foster and Adoptive Family Services Foundation.
Lena Matthews, President and CEO of Financial Resources FCU and Chairperson of the Foundation presented a check for $20,000 to Pamela DePompo, Executive Director of Healing the Children New Jersey.
Help for Two Great Causes
Healing the Children New Jersey assists New Jersey children with serious medical diagnoses and developmental disabilities whose families need support in meeting their children’s medical needs due to financial distress.
“I was delighted to accept this most generous contribution, which will permit Healing the Children New Jersey to provide care, medications, therapy, and equipment for local children from needy families within Somerset, Middlesex and Hunterdon Counties”, remarked Pamela DePompo, Executive Director Healing the Children New Jersey. “The boys and girls we serve have complex medical diagnoses and developmental disabilities, and the funds donated by the Financial Resources Federal Credit Union will help many children in need. We thank Financial Resources and its event sponsors, donors and attendees.”
Matthews also presented $2,000, the proceeds of the silent auction, to Janet Farrand, President of Foster and Adoptive Family Services Foundation. This organization helps to meet the special needs of foster, adoptive and kinship families in New Jersey by providing funding for scholarships, extracurricular activities, holiday celebrations, and self-esteem enrichment activities.
