Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® Light The Night®
VyStar Credit Union is a proud supporter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) mission to bring light to the darkness of cancer. Light The Night is a series of campaigns benefitting the LLS’s funding of research to find cures for blood cancer, as well as their efforts to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. In November 2019, VyStar held its own two-week, company-wide Light The Night fundraising campaign, culminating in the Light The Night Walk.
Congratulations to Jenny Vipperman, Chief Lending Officer as the 2019 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Woman of the Year! Why she ran: “I am competing in the Man & Woman of the Year campaign in honor of my dad, who lost his battle with lung cancer on November 28th of last year, almost exactly 12 months to the day from his diagnosis. I wanted to raise as much as I possibly could so that someday another daughter wouldn’t lose her dad way too soon.” For information about running, visit www.mwoy.org
United Way of Northeast Florida
VyStar Credit Union is a proud supporter of the United Way in their fight for the health, youth success and financial stability of every person in Northeast Florida. United Way works with community partners to overcome student challenges in the classroom, help families make ends meet, provide access to basic needs, connect individuals to critical health resources and match volunteers’ purpose with passion. In 2018, VyStar employees pledged over $303,000 to support United Way’s efforts.
In addition to the employees' financial pledges they volunteer their time as mentors, for neighborhood cleanup projects, building Born Learning Trails and much more!
We are thrilled to announce that VyStar Credit Union broke a company record during its March of Dimes fundraising campaign: As a company, we raised a total of $124,133.74—more than we’ve ever raised before! The fundraising event culminated with the March for Babies walk, which was held on May 12, 2018. All of the money raised by VyStar will be donated to the March of Dimes for research to end premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality. We would like to thank all VyStar members and employees for their outstanding generosity throughout all our fundraising efforts.
