Empowering our Community

#GivingTuesday Contest Winners 

We're proud to serve our community on a daily basis, and are always looking for ways to further our local support. This year as part of the national Giving Tuesday movement, we empowered our employees to each choose a charity and donated $50 on their behalf. In addition, we also invited the community to let their voice be heard by nominating a local charitiy for a chance to win a $250 donation. Four winners were chosen at random from all of the submissions. Below are the winners of this years community #GivingTuesday contest: 

Thea Bowman House

This charity has been serving low-income, at-risk children and families in Utica since 1986. They provide quality care in the hope of breaking the cycle of poverty through educational and social enrichment. A gift of $250 will help us continue to give hats, mittens, Easter baskets, and birthday parties to the kids.

Amanda L. King Memorial Fund

This charity is close to my heart. It was set up in my cousin's memory after she lost her battle with cancer in 2009, just shy of her 19th birthday. Money raised by the Amanda L. King foundation stays right here in our community to help ease some of the financial burden experienced by families who have a child battling cancer.

Capitol Civic Center

Nominated by Julie

I served as a volunteer and have worked for the Capitol for many years. Throughout that time, it occurred to me that the work we do is not just a job, it's a passion and a lifestyle. It is not uncommon for the Capitol's volunteers and staff to work 12+ hours per day, especially during the busy season. Yet one cannot always tell since everyone seems to have never-ending amounts of energy to accomplish the work they do. Everyone here loves theater and film, and understands that the arts serve as an important cultural and economical anchor for the city. Whenever you visit the Capitol, you are greeted by smiling faces by people who know you by name. The Capitol is always eager to work with other nonprofits to accomplish great work for all of those in Rome, even if there is not an obvious benefit in it for the Capitol. It is simply enough to help our neighbors!

Valley Health Services 

Nominated by Connie

Valley Health Services is a 160-bed nursing home in Herkimer, NY. At Valley Health Services, it is about family and every resident has a story to tell. Each is a daughter or a son with children, grandchildren, great grandchildren or family members, who are concerned about their health and welfare. For them, choosing the right nursing home is personal—it's a life decision. For the healthcare personnel who deliver excellent care and compassion 24/7, it is also personal. The healthcare professionals strive to make every decision families face less daunting by opening their doors to a fulfilling lifestyle with excellent care. At Valley Health Services, residents thrive in a healthy environment, with an array of engaging activities and opportunities for socialization. Valley Health Services' healthcare professionals would be so grateful for a gift of $250 on behalf of First Source Federal Credit Union because it would allow them to continue to provide essential services and socialization for those who truly need it.

Congratulations to all the winners!
