Northern Star Helps Provide Christmas to Local Victims of Domestic Violence.

Northern Star Credit Union has made a $3000 corporate contribution to the H.E.R. Shelter’s Annual Silent Nights campaign fund.  This contribution celebrates over ten years of support for the shelter by Northern Star Credit Union and is used by the H.E.R. Shelter to provide Christmas dinners and presents for their residents, in addition to any other financial need directly supporting Hampton Roads victims of domestic violence.

“Northern Star has been a major player in helping us meet holiday needs for the past ten years,” remarked Beth Cross, Executive Director of the H.E.R. Shelter.  “Since Northern Star Credit Union began supporting us over a decade ago, their contributions have directly helped 184 women and children received a full Christmas, including presents for each child and the holiday meal to accompany.  In addition, over 230 children have received new shoes at Christmas, a basic need that often goes unnoticed while in shelter.”

Since 1928, Northern Star Credit Union has served many residents of Hampton Roads as an affordable alternative to big banks.  Low interest loans and rewards checking accounts have made Northern Star a staple among smart consumers.  For more information, visit www.nstarcu.org

The H.E.R. Shelter is a private, non-profit agency, certified by the United Way of South Hampton Roads, which helps between 600-800 women and children each year who are victims of domestic violence.  If you or someone you know needs help, contact their “24 Hour Crisis Hotline” 757-485-3384.
