Syracuse, NY – On March 20, 2019, Visions Federal Credit Union presented a $1,850 donation to Clear Path for Veterans of Chittenango, NY. Visions' branch manager Jessica Randall and Business Development Officer Sarah Parton were on hand to present the check, with Events and Volunteer Manager Maggie Benedict and Chief Strategic Officer Earl Fontenot representing Clear Path for Veterans.
The donated funds came from Visions' employee-led Denim Days program. Each week, Visions employees may elect to donate $5 from their paychecks to a rotating suite of charities in exchange for the opportunity to wear jeans on Fridays. Clear Path for Veterans was one of three charities chosen as a recipient for the month of March.
"I think it's great that something as simple as wearing jeans on Fridays can make such an impact," said Jessica Randall. "It feels good to help an organization like Clear Path for Veterans that does so much for our veteran communities."
