Guest post by Norah Carroll, Digital Marketing Strategist at Veridian Credit Union
As a not-for-profit, Veridian Credit Union has a heart for people who give back. Our credit union is owned by our members, and we’re committed to enriching the communities our members call home. We’re excited to open our newest Des Moines-area branch, located at the corner of Ingersoll and MLK, this June. And to celebrate, we want to shine a light on the unsung heroes who are making our community a better place.
Through May 8, we’re inviting non-profits in the Des Moines area to nominate their most dedicated volunteers for the chance to be recognized as a “Volunteer Inspiring Progress,” or VIP, in one of three categories: inclusion, innovation andfinancial literacy. From these nominees, we’ll select three volunteers to honor as VIPs – volunteers who share our vision for the future and who are making our community a better place.
So, what does it mean if your organization’s volunteer is selected as a VIP? To show our support for the work these VIPs are doing,Veridian will donate $1,000 to each non-profit whose volunteer is selected. And, each VIP will also receive a well-deserved gift and recognition at our branch opening event this summer.
To nominate the “best of the best” in your organization, or to find out more about Volunteers Inspiring Progress, visitveridiancu.org/vip. We can’t wait to share the stories of our community’s most inspiring volunteers.
