WALL, N.J. – The First Financial Federal Credit Union Foundation recently awarded $500 to South Toms River Elementary School to sponsor their annual Career Day Program for students.
The fourth and fifth grade students at South Toms River Elementary School will be visiting Monmouth University (West Long Branch, NJ) in May to tour the college campus and learn about the different types of education required for specific careers. The sponsorship money will be used toward a welcome breakfast, field trip transportation, and other activities throughout the day.
First Financial’s Business Development department was also asked to come back to the elementary school to speak as a presenter during South Toms River Elementary’s on site Career Day to discuss basic financial education with the students.
“We’re thrilled to be fortunate enough to help the students of South Toms River Elementary prepare themselves for a bright future during their Career Day and visit to Monmouth University. Since we began as a teacher’s credit union, we thrive on the importance of education and the success it brings – we’re happy to support this great program,” added Issa Stephan, President and CEO of First Financial.
