VSECU is sponsoring Northeast Kingdom Youth Services’ (NEKYS) “Footsteps to Awareness,” the nonprofit’s 13th annual walk for homeless youth and young adults. The walk will take place on September 24, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the United Community Church at 1325 Main Street in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. NEKYS welcomes businesses, school groups, all community members to participate in the walk as a solo walker or as a team.
NEKYS provides services to homeless youth and young adults in Caledonia and Southern Essex counties, including safe and stable housing, mental health and substance abuse treatment, assistance with employment and educational goals, and skills development in money management and self-care.
As a member-owned cooperative credit union, VSECU believes in bringing people together to create greater value, and this walk is a perfect example of how a community can to come together and pool resources to help a worthy cause.
