On Thursday October 17, VSECU celebrated International Credit Union Day with this year’s theme: Unite For Good. Our branches gave away VSECU-logoed items, and for the first time ever we had a prize drawing to benefit the recipient and a Vermont-based charitable organization. The drawing awarded $500 to the winner and $500 to the Vermont-based charity of his or her choice. Historically ICU Day has been celebrated at our branch locations, but this year the celebration expanded online as well to give more people a chance to participate.
From the online and in-branch entries, the random drawing selected Carol Dubuque from North Hero as the winner. Carol has chosen the Vermont Foodbank as the charitable organization to receive the $500 donation. The Vermont Foodbank was very grateful to receive the gift stating that the $500 will provide 1,500 meals and help feed a Vermont family of four for over a year (375 days).
