In an ongoing effort to support the youth of our communities, Jovia Financial Credit Union, one of the leading credit unions on Long Island, has announced a multi-year partnership agreement with Northwell Health Ice Center as the “Official Credit Union Partner” of the ice center located in Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, NY / Westbury, NY.

Jovia will be the presenting sponsor of the In-House Youth Hockey Programs at Northwell Health Ice Center, which includes Youth House Leagues, Youth Summer Camps and Youth Clinics. Each program is geared towards kids ages 5–13.

A Jovia Financial Credit Union ATM will be positioned conveniently in the main lobby, and during select times, Jovia representatives will be present to interact with families, provide information about Jovia’s services, and promote financial literacy.

“Young people’s passion for playing hockey is growing by leaps and bounds and Jovia is excited to be a part of it by partnering with Northwell Health Ice Center to sponsor its in-house youth hockey programs,” commented Renu Dalessandro, chief marketing officer, Jovia Financial Credit Union. “Youth sports provide so many benefits for children, both mentally and physically, and we look forward to supporting youth hockey and athletics on Long Island, while helping children achieve fulfilling athletic experiences.”
