SJFCU BENEFIT

Did you know that as a resident of Lindenwold, New Jersey, you're eligible to open an account at South Jersey Federal Credit Union​? 

Having a credit union account opens up a world of financial freedom and educational opportunities not offered by traditional banks. 

South Jersey Federal Credit UnionStudents, for example, are able to open savings accounts with a $25.00 minimum and access the same benefits as members who have checking accounts. This allows them the possibility of helping pay for their education or apply for mortgages in the future. 

All of these benefits and more are especially pertinent to African American and Latino residents, who make up the vast majority of underbanked and unbanked citizens (according to the 2015 FDIC National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households). 

Residents of the Borough of Lindenwold, who would like to join the South Jersey Federal Credit Union (SJFCU), please check out their website: southjerseyfcu.com or stop by one of their 9 branches to see if you are eligible for membership in SJFCU!

To make paying Borough bills easier, SJFCU has also installed an ATM machine within Borough Hall. No fees for account holders.

WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY FOR LINDENWOLD AND OUR STUDENTS!


As our students return to school, we want to share with you a brewing opportunity for them and Lindenwold. This summer the folks at LoveLindenwold.org met with PATCO General Manager, John Rink, who offered to help promote our town by showcasing Lindenwold on the newly installed TV monitors within the Head House and up on the loading platforms of our Lindenwold station.

We feel that a natural fit for those monitors is our cable channel 192, produced by our local high school students. We've secured approval from PATCO and the Lindenwold Board of Education expressed approval as well as the content is already on TV, part of the public domain.

Click Here for more about Lindenwold PATCO
This is a tremendous opportunity for Lindenwold students to gain valuable portfolio fodder and an equally important opportunity to promote a positive Lindenwold within our most trafficked Borough resource - our PATCO station. All we're waiting on now is for Mayor Roach to "Turn on the Pride!"

What's more is that PATCO has also offered resources to place a kiosk within the station to house Borough information (event calendars, bike maps, newsletters, etc) that will further promote Lindenwold to the thousands of the travelers who use PATCO everyday. Please share your enthusiasm for these opportunities with your Mayor by calling or sending him an email. And don't forget to thank John Rink of PATCO and congratulate our high school students!! We see this as a springboard to a greater sense of community and a means to Build a Better Borough! Thank you and keep your eyes on those monitors!

WE'VE TURNED 25...

 ...of Lindenwold's Streetlights back on since we started!!
LOVING LIGHT IN LINDENWOLD!

Studies report that one of the cheapest and easiest ways to reduce crime is to add light. Consider adding 'dusk til dawn' motion lights to the outside of your property. A few studies have even found that the color of public street lights can affect suicide rates.

Help reduce Borough crime; report non-working streetlights by calling Atlantic City Electric at 1-800-642-3780.

Or on your smartphone by clicking "outages" in the Atlantic City Electric App. Click here for Android and here for iPhone. 

A huge thank you to all residents and readers who are helping the cause!

Even the smallest actions are steps in the right direction!
