Vizo Financial and its payment and technology CUSO, MY CU Services, continue to make a positive difference in our local communities. From volunteerism to donations, we want to share all the community activities we've got going on with you.
Vizo Financial staff volunteered at two Financial Reality Fairs hosted by Belco Community Credit Union in October. The first was on October 6 at Big Springs High School in Newville, Pa., and the second was on October 20 at Greenwood High School in Millerstown, Pa. Financial Reality Fairs are an interactive financial education experience for students. This hands-on experience allows students to identify their career choice and starting salaries, then complete a budget sheet requiring them to live within their monthly salary while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, clothing and food. Additional expenditures such as entertainment and travel are factored in as well. It’s always a good time introducing students to credit unions and helping them dive deeper into financial literacy.
Vizo Financial held our Day of Service on October 10, 2022. Staff had the opportunity to volunteer at one of several events being offered at each campus. Following a morning of volunteer activities and camaraderie, staff enjoyed some lunch and reflection on our efforts to demonstrate the credit union movement’s cooperative principle of “concern for community.” Organizations we supported during this year’s Day of Service included:

On October 20, Vizo Financial joins credit unions around the world in celebrating the 74th annual International Credit Union Day and this year's theme of "Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union.” In honor of this day of recognition for our movement, we’re sharing stories from our recent Day of Service, engaging in educational opportunities and games and, of course, telling our favorite tales of how credit unions have made an impact in our everyday lives. We certainly feel empowered with our ICU Day celebrations and even shared some on Twitter with hashtag, #ICUDay!
Vizo Financial is making a financial donation towards the CrossState Credit Union Foundation’s WalletPalooza fundraising event. Staff will have an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to win a wallet filled with a variety of gift cards. The drawing will be held in December 2022. The CrossState Credit Union Foundation changes people’s lives by promoting financial education, professional development, disaster relief and credit union relevance.
The 28th annual Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals Radiothon to benefit Duke Children’s in North Carolina will be held on December 13-14, 2022. Vizo Financial will be a Spirit of Hope sponsor again this year. Last year, the CMN Radiothon raised $642,990 for Duke Children’s!
