MONTPELIER, Vt., March 27, 2014 – VSECU, a credit union for all Vermonters, donated $23,000 to Vermont charities through the We Care 2 Program. More than 7,000 credit union members cast a vote to help direct this portion of VSECU’s charitable contributions.
This year’s We Care 2 Program received 49 applications from charities from across the state of Vermont for consideration. The five finalists selected by VSECU’s Community Contributions Committee were NCSS Youth in Transition, Rutland Community Cupboard, Southern Vermont Natural History Museum, Therapy Dogs of Vermont and Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. The organizations were encouraged to rally support to earn VSECU membership votes through their social media and other communication channels.
