BlueOx Credit Union Partners With JATA
In cooperation with BlueOx Credit Union, the Jackson Area Transportation Authority is proud to announce a new program aimed at lowering transportation hurdles for Jackson residents actively rebuilding their lives.
BlueOx Credit Union has created an account with JATA for both the Home of New Vision and the Jackson Interfaith Shelter, seeding each with $500, which the nonprofits can access to pay for a client's bus pass or Reserve-a-Ride to job interviews, health care appointments, or other vital services.
Jessica Webb, Business Development Manager for the Credit Union, who played a significant role in developing the program, said, “BlueOx Credit Union is proud to partner with JATA in providing a solution of transportation needs for both Jackson Interfaith Home and Home of New Vision. Our core values focus on people helping people, creating solutions, igniting change, and supporting growth and prosperity in the communities we serve. We are thrilled to see this initiative come to fruition.”
