Reading, PA – The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association selected Visions Federal Credit Union as the recipient of its 2019 Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award.
Visions joined a group of six other credit unions in hosting annual financial reality fairs for local high schools in the Reading market. These fairs provide opportunities for local high school students to engage in a hands-on approach to budgeting after graduation. Participating students researched a career and learned how to manage their cost of living expenses based on their estimated salary.
Visions’ partners for this event included Bellco Federal Credit Union, Diamond Credit Union, Discovery Federal Credit Union, Riverfront Federal Credit Union, Sun Federal Credit Union, and Utilities Employees Credit Union.
In addition to this state-level award, Visions has also been chosen to represent Pennsylvania in the National Dora Maxwell Contest to be held in the fall of 2019.
