Credit Union of New Jersey makes first of three $25,000 donations for local technology center
Local financial institution Credit Union of New Jersey recently donated $25,000 to SERV Behavioral Health System. The inaugural donation is set to recur for the next two years, totaling $75,000 to support the upcoming state-of-the-art SERV Technology Center.
With up to 50 working computer stations, the SERV Technology Center aims to improve technological and financial literacy in both their company and their consumers. Additional resources at the Technology Center include a SERV store and hands-on staff.
“We are extremely grateful for this extraordinary gift from the Credit Union of New Jersey Foundation,” said Regina Widdows, President/CEO of SERV Behavioral Health System. “We recognized a strong need to provide our consumers as well as our staff with technology training. The new state-of-the art Technology Center will enable our consumers to learn how to do online searches for additional information about wellness, nutrition and job opportunities, as well as gain online banking and financial management skills, leading them toward more independent living. In addition, our staff will be able to enhance their professional development by using the tools available at the Technology Center.”
Andrew L. Jaeger, CCE, President and CEO of Credit Union of New Jersey shares Widdows’ excitement.
“The self-confidence and self-reliance the SERV Technology Center will develop in its participants is a mission we fully support,” Jaeger says “In fact, the mission of Credit Union of New Jersey is to give our members the freedom to prosper. And that’s exactly what the SERV Technology Center will do.”
The Center is currently being designed for a location in Mercer County.
