Connex Credit Union will donate all fees collected from their Hamden branch coin counting machine from January 1 through March 31 to the Hamden Regional Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Fund.
The coin counting machine charges 5 percent to Connex members and 7 percent to non- members. Every quarter Connex chooses different local organizations for each of their four coin counting machines located in Guilford, Hamden, North Haven and Wallingford.
The Hamden Regional Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization composed of members from the business community who are concerned with the importance of maintaining a positive economic climate in the Hamden area and beyond. Their annual scholarship fund provides scholarships to area students pursuing a college degree.
If you are a local non-profit or charitable organization interested in participating in the “Coins for Change” program, please contact Chris Whalen at Connex Credit Union, at 203-603-5787 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
