Paragon Federal Credit Union Spring Fund Raisers
Paragon Federal Credit Union in Northern New Jersey has joined our group of wonderful associated sponsors to support AaSP's programs for our troops. Paragon set up bins in its nine branches to collect products for a special Spring shipment of goodies to soldiers in the NJ Army National Guard stationed in Iraq. Additionally, every branch provided its members the opportunity to win a special Spring prize by correctly guessing the number of jelly beans in a jar set up in the branch.

Well, the fund raisers were a huge success. Not only did Paragon raise money for the InFocus projector, but it also was able to fund office supplies needed by one of the NJ Guard units. Additionally, employees and credit union members dropped off a tremendous amount of food, personal care and other items that will provide a great deal of enjoyment to both our NJ ARNG units. These items were packed on Friday, March 23rd, and will be shipped on Monday, March 26th.
Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon is extremely grateful to the entire Paragon FCU team for its generosity, patriotism and energy to help our troops!
