In continuing our corporate commitment to support New York City’s everyday heroes, Municipal Credit Union sponsored the fifth annual New York Jets First Responders Game at MetLife Stadium on Saturday, December 15, 2018. This is second year in a row MCU has sponsored this event, which was attended by nearly 78,000 people and included an on-field pregame ceremony honoring first responders and the work they do each day to help our communities.
First responders are important members of both the Jets and MCU communities. These individuals are the backbone of our city who help our neighbors in some of their greatest times of need. They are our heroes in times of crisis. As of 2018, there are more than 50,000 first responders serving New York City, including 38,422 NYPD officers, 11,051 FDNY Firefighters and 4,414 united EMTs, paramedics and fire inspectors.
Municipal Credit Union is the official Credit Union of the New York Jets. Since 2017, MCU and the Jets have worked together to positively impact the people and communities surrounding the New York area. In addition to our sponsorship of the First Responders Game, MCU is a proud partner of Jets Tackle Bullying, a program that, with the help of leading anti-bullying organization STOMP Out Bullying, promotes a healthy and inclusive culture among young people.
