MyNeighbor credit card making a difference

The MyNeighbor credit card from Everence® Federal Credit Union is different, and that made a difference to Cedric and Lora Roth of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.

The Roths already had a couple of credit cards, on which they earned gasoline points or cash back. “Do we really want another credit card?” is what they were thinking when they learned the MyNeighbor card was available, Cedric recalls.

But they also realized that “cash back is basically just benefiting us,” he said. “We’d rather contribute that money to our church than our next credit card bill.”

The MyNeighbor card allows people to choose the charitable organization or church they want to support. Everence donates 1.5 percent of MyNeighbor transaction totals to the organization the cardholder chooses – his or her Neighbor.

Cedric recently started working for Everence in our Central Penn core market, and he’s been the Everence stewardship advocate in his home congregation, Marion Mennonite Church, for more than a year.
