MONTPELIER — VSECU, member-owned cooperative and not-for-profit credit union for all Vermonters, is providing a total of $50,000 to five Vermont nonprofits through its member-directed giving program We Care 2, as follows: Greater Bennington Interfaith Community Services, $7,418; North Central Vermont Recovery Center, $9,896; ReSOURCE, $10,761; The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants Vermont, $10,767; and The Clarina Howard Nichols Center, $11,158.

Each year, We Care 2 funds are distributed based on the percentage of votes received by each charitable organization in VSECU’s Annual Elections. This year, VSECU members cast more than 4,000 votes, each amounting to a direct donation to their preferred nonprofit.

Finalists for We Care 2 program, as well as all recipients of VSECU giving, are selected based on their positive and direct impact on issues of food, shelter, heat, environment or financial education for Vermonters. This year, priority consideration was given to programs or organizations specifically focused on COVID-19 relief efforts.
