"The Big Give" 2021
Endwell, NY – Visions Federal Credit Union today announced a gift of $100,000 to ten Habitat for Humanity chapters in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Each chapter will receive $10,000 as part of "The Big Give."
Giving back is a core part of Visions' mission and culture. Through its Visions Cares program, they donate over $1 million to the communities they serve. This year, they wanted to start something different with The Big Give. Each year moving forward, Visions will choose a not for profit organization to support, with a focus on those performing community service, as part of The Big Give. Visions looks for worthy organizations in all the communities it serves across a three-state footprint.
"Habitat for Humanity made perfect sense as our first recipients of The Big Give," said Tim Strong, Visions' Public Relations and Community Engagement Manager. "Visions focuses on building strong communities and there's no better program than Habitat to do just that."
Recipients of The Big Give include:
- Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County (New Jersey)
- Habitat for Humanity of Warren County (New Jersey)
- Paterson Habitat for Humanity (New Jersey)
- Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties (New York)
- Broome County Habitat for Humanity (New York)
- Chemung County Habitat for Humanity (New York
- Flower City Habitat for Humanity (New York)
- New York State Habitat for Humanity
- Habitat for Humanity of Berks County (Pennsylvania)
- Habitat for Humanity Lehigh Valley (Pennsylvania)
The funds will help support the Habitat for Humanity mission to build homes, communities, and hope – a great fit for the Visions Cares initiative.
