First New York Federal Credit Union To Collect Personal Hygiene Products This Holiday Season



First New York Federal Credit Union lives by the philosophy of “People Helping People” and is committed to serving our members and our community.
Capital Region residents who receive Food Stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs) are not permitted to purchase personal hygiene products; no deodorant, no soap, no shampoo, no laundry detergent, no razors and not even toilet paper can be purchased with their benefits.
In an effort to assist them, First New York is collecting rolls of toilet paper at all branches and at their company headquarters. First New York’s goal is to collect toilet paper to share with Catholic Charities Tri-County Services, an agency made up of programs that assist the needy with the basic necessities of life.
First New York Federal Credit Union has been in business for 80 years, offering all the traditional financial products such as mortgages, home equity and auto loans, checking and savings accounts, share certificates, money market accounts, education loans, commercial banking and investments.
First New York FCU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative which serves more than 30,000 members, with assets totaling approximately $311 million. The credit union was originally founded in 1937 as Schenectady Teachers Federal Credit Union, and now has six full service branch locations and operates 3 in-school branch offices, run by student volunteers inside the Schenectady, Mohonasen, and Scotia-Glenville High Schools.
