On May 7, the Affinity Federal Credit Union Foundation presented a check to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans Memorial/Vietnam Era Museum and Educational Center, in Holmdel, NJ, for $4,100. This grant will establish the Affinity Federal Credit Union Scholarship, awarded to a high school senior from New Jersey who has visited the Center and written an essay on his/her experience, as well as provide the opportunity for students from low-income school districts to take a class trip to the Memorial and Museum.

Those visiting students also would hear first-hand accounts and perspective about the Vietnam War and era.

The New Jersey Vietnam Veterans Memorial/Vietnam Era Museum and Educational Center was one of seven recipients of Affinity Federal Credit Union Foundation’s grants for the first quarter of 2014.

“This much-needed aid would not have been possible without the generous support of our members, employees and businesses, who have chosen to be a part of something better,” said Dr. Lauretta Farrell, executive director of the Affinity Federal Credit Union Foundation.
