2017 Charity Event

It is with great pleasure that Financial Resources Federal Credit Union announces its 2017 Foundation Charity Event, which will take place on Monday, May 1st at The Palace at Somerset Park beginning at 5:30 p.m.  Proceeds from this year's event will benefit YCS (Youth Consultation Service) and Visions and Pathways.

  • Youth Consultation Services 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.
  • Visions and Pathways' (V&P) mission is to provide abused, neglected, homeless and missing youth ages 13-21 with housing, a stable environment, and supportive services that guide them in becoming self-sufficient. Founded in 1970, V&P is at the forefront of efforts to help human trafficking victims and combat the opioid epidemic.

Our 2017 Charity Event will include the following:

  • Cocktail Hour
