Metro Donates to Jewish Federation of the North Shore

CHELSEA, Mass. (April 9, 2012) – In a continuing effort to fund programs that  support children and young adults, Metro Credit Union donated over $14,500 to  agencies and programs affiliated with the Jewish Federation of the North Shore  through a Platinum Visa Card affinity program over the last six years.

The Jewish Federation of the North Shore Platinum Visa Card provides  funds to over fifteen area Jewish programs and agencies affiliated with The  Federation.  Each time card holders make a purchase using the affinity credit  card, Metro matches a portion of the purchase to contribute to the non-profit  programs.

The Federation partnered with Metro to allow supporters to “Make a  purchase and make a difference.”  Metro donates a percentage of purchases made  with the JFNS Platinum Visa Card to the agency or program of the cardholder’s  choice, and credits a portion of purchases back to the cardholder’s account.

“The Federation provides valuable resources to the North Shore and we are honored to be a select partner,” said Robert M. Cashman, President and CEO of  Metro.

This year, Metro donated $2,500 to the Jewish Federation of the North  Shore through this program. Interested applicants can apply for the Jewish  Federation of the North Shore Platinum Visa Card by contacting Metro Credit  Union at 877-MY-METRO.
