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.

In November and December, Vizo Financial and credit unions in the Central Pennsylvania and Carolinas areas will be supporting two radiothons to benefit Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals at Penn State Children’s Hospital and Duke Children’s.

Penn State Children’s Hospital – Pay 4 Play
Each year, Harrisburg, Pa., radio station, 105.7 The X, hosts a 24-hour radiothon called Pay 4 Play. The radiothon raises money for kids at Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, Pa. During the event, listeners can call in and request songs in exchange for a donation to CMN Hospitals. Over the past 13 years, Pay 4 Play has brought in more than $2 million for the children’s hospital! We’ve asked Central Pennsylvania credit unions to join us in co-sponsoring the 2020 Pay 4 Play, which will be held on November 12-13. Although there won’t be any volunteer opportunities this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, we can still do our part to support this great cause!

Duke Children’s Radiothon
Another year, another Duke Children’s radiothon! Held annually over the past 25 years, the radiothon is run by MIX 101.5, and it’s raised over $18 million for CMN Hospitals at Duke Children’s in Durham, N.C. The radiothon will take place from December 15-16, 2020, and will feature Miracle Child stories, information about Duke Children’s and the opportunity for listeners to make donations to benefits the kids receiving life-saving treatment. Typically, credit unions are able to volunteer to take donations over the phone. However, the pandemic has changed that for the 2020 radiothon, but many credit unions are joining in to co-sponsor the event under the Carolinas Credit Unions name. We’re excited to be part of this year’s Duke Children’s radiothon!
