Endwell, NY – Visions Federal Credit Union presented a check for $25,135 to Operation Homefront on February 18th (2020).

In attendance were Visions' President and CEO, Ty Muse, New York Congressman Anthony Brindisi, Broome County Executive Jason Garnar, and Pete Stinson, the Northeastern Regional Director for Operation Homefront.

The check donation was the culmination of the first year of Visions' Veterans Program, designed to help veterans and their families throughout the organization's three-state footprint.

"Veterans are the cornerstone of our communities," said Muse at the presentation. "They give and continue to give so much to the places we call home, and it only felt right to give something back to them."

Visions' Veterans Program offers a variety of bonuses for veterans and their spouses, a waiver of minimum balance fees for their Flex Checking Plus account, and a unique scholarship opportunity for veterans' children and dependents. The focus of the check presentation, however, was tied to Visions' new Americana debit card.

For each new, patriotic-themed debit card ordered by its members, Visions donated $5 to Operation Homefront. Since November 11, 2018, the start of the Veterans Program, Visions members ordered 5,027 Americana debit cards, resulting in the day's donation.

"I just want to thank Visions for this donation and their commitment to the health and wellbeing of our veteran community," said Stinson. "Many of our veterans come home and need assistance, oftentimes financially. This donation will help us build new housing and give back to those who gave so much."
