Community Involvement

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.

2020 Hot Dog Eating Contest
Hot diggity dog…this year’s annual Hot Dog Eating Contest is going virtual! We’re looking forward to hosting our popular event in a way that meets social distancing guidelines, but still brings money and awareness to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. Watch the contestants scarf down as many hot dogs as they can via an online Zoom meeting on July 23, 2020. Credit unions across the country are invited to join in the fun as contestants, sponsors and supporters of CMN Hospitals. Registration and details about the virtual Hot Dog Eating Contest are now available on the event website!

Virtual Food Drive: The Results
Our Virtual Food Drive ended on June 12, 2020. Over the course of the food drive, Vizo Financial, our staff and credit unions raised money for food banks to help them keep up with the high demand they’ve experienced as a result of the pandemic. In total, we collected more than $6,000 in donations. Here’s the breakdown of what we raised:

  • Central Pennsylvania Food Bank
    Harrisburg, Pa. - $1,648
  • Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
    Pittsburgh, Pa. - $2,135
  • Harvest Hope Food Bank
    Columbia, S.C. - $853
  • Second Harvest Food Bank
