North Jersey Federal Credit Union, Totowa, N.J., participated in two community events to support breast cancer awareness, the Lee National Denim Day and the Breast Cancer Walk. Credit union employees participated in the denim day event by sporting their favorite pair of jeans to work and donating to the breast cancer awareness fund. Employees also donated their time to participate in the Breast Cancer Walk held at Bergen Community College and distributed water bottles. Employees who could not participate made monetary contributions to the breast cancer fund. Bethpage Federal Credit Union, Bethpage, N.Y., partnered with Cablevision, National Grid, Northrop Grumman and the New York Islanders hockey team in hosting a turkey and trimmings collection to benefit Island Harvest, the hunger relief organization that supplies Long Island’s community-based nonprofit organizations with food. The food drive included daylong and after-school specials for family fun and a lineup of trucks, tents and boxes for storing the public’s donations. New York Knicks basketball legend John Starks was on site to assist the volunteers and chat with the public.
