Financial Resources FCU 2017 Foundation Charity Event Raises $20,000

Charity event proceeds to benefit Youth Consultation Services (YCS) and Visions and Pathways

BRIDGEWATER, May 4, 2017 – Financial Resources FCU Foundation is pleased to announce that its annual charity event held on May 1, 2017 at The Palace at Somerset Park raised $20,000 to benefit Youth Consultation Services (YCS) and Visions and Pathways.

Lena Matthews, President and CEO of Financial Resources FCU and Chairperson of the Foundation presented individual $10,000 checks to Fran Spiegel, AVP of Development at the YCS Foundation; and to David Walker, CEO/Executive Director and Zoila Gonzalez, Director of Administration of Visions and Pathways.

“This was such a great event. We’re so grateful to have been selected and we were floored by the generosity of your foundation and sponsors”, said Fran Spiegel. The funds will be used to support art therapy for children at YCS with special needs.

YSC cares for thousands of New Jersey's most vulnerable children, from birth to adulthood. From placing newborn, drug-addicted babies with loving families; to safe-haven group homes for children who are victims of abuse and neglect; to clinics in the most impoverished areas of NJ--YCS helps children & families begin to heal the wounds that none of us can see. The funds raised at the Financial Resources FCU Foundation Charity Event will be used to support art therapy for children at YCS with special needs.

David Walker, Visions and Pathways Executive Director said, “Visions and Pathways is grateful for the very generous donation from FRFCU. Each year, approximately 800 youth in New Jersey 'age-out' of foster care and are expected to be independent when they turn 18 years old. A portion of FRFCU’s donation will support our efforts to assist homeless college students,” Walker continued. "Thanks to the financial support of companies like the Financial Resources Federal Credit Union, we can help hard working youth get the support they need to become successful adults."

We want to recognize two outstanding organizations for thier gracious and generous support of the Financial Resources FCU Foundation, YCS and Visions and Pathways:

  • Silent Auction Sponsor: The Jordan Real Estate Group Quality Title & Abstract Agency;
  • Cocktail Hour Sponsor: The Law Offices of Jane Paftinos LLC
