Hillsborough Credit Card Program Pays Off for Six Local Charities


HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - Six different non-profit organizations have received grant awards through the Hillsborough Rewards Visa Credit Card Program. 
Representatives from the organizations accepted a ceremonial check 
presented by Mayor Frank DelCore and the members of the Credit Card Advisory 
Committee at this week's Township Committee meeting. 
The total awarded was $8,246.20. Since the inception of the 
program, nearly $50,000 in grants to community based youth, senior and local non-profit organizations have been awarded.

The Spring 2016 Grant recipients are:
 - Hillsborough Senior Chapter A
 - Hillsborough Senior Chapter B
 - Hillsborough Youth Lacrosse
 - Hillsborough Soccer Club
 - Boy Scouts Troop 1776
 - Hillsborough High School Boys Soccer Club
“This program continues to be a success, as a result of the continued usage of the cards and of course these grants come at no expense to our taxpayers,” DelCore said.

“We thank all of the cardholders who participate in the program and encourage all 
residents to obtain an Affinity Hillsborough Rewards Visa Credit Card so this program 
can continue to grow. It’s an easy way one can give back to our community while 
earning rewards at the same time,” DelCore added.
The opening of the Fall 2016 Grant Application period will be announced late Summer.
The credit card program is at no cost to the taxpayers of Hillsborough.
