Our two new Cherry Hill campuses, opening May 15, 2010, will exemplify our commitment by providing Free Financial Workshops, a Learning Library, Knowledge Bar and a Little Learner’s Corner to our customers. We remain well capitalized and will continue to invest in our customers, employees and communities to do the right thing financially.”
