“Three initial reasons why I want to assist VSECU fulfill its mission: 1) Give Back: VSECU provided a grant to Wheel Pad L3C to assist in building our prototype +Add PAD. Thus, I have experienced the fulfillment of its mission when VSECU successfully assisted our mission to keep families together when mobility issues arise. 2) Serve Vermont in a Different Way: I have worked on various government, community, and business organizations on social responsibility initiatives in Vermont and nationally for 32 years. Supporting and enhancing the VSECU commitment of financial social responsibility is a strong draw. 3) Learn: My experiences have led to a basic understanding of how the financial sector assists, and also sometimes harms, Vermonters. I want to understand the systems more fully to assist Vermonters without much financial equity make their own gains. VSECU members are a unique community. I look forward to being more involved within it.”
