HELP DIRECT $23,000 TO VERMONT CHARITIES

We Care 2 is a member-directed giving program where you, the member, determine the distribution of funds. The VSECU Giving Committee has chosen five finalists, from 37 applying organizations, that positively impact one or more of the essential needs of Vermonters. Now it’s your turn. When ballots mail in late January, take the chance to vote for the organization that you believe is the most deserving of a donation. Funds will be distributed based on the percentage of votes each charity receives, so your vote counts!
