The first three years of school shapes a child's future. The things learned during this time period will determine how far they will excel in school and after they graduate.

Beacon Credit Union has teamed up with the YMCA on the Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program.

Last week, Shara Smals, our Buena Vista branch manager delivered a generous donation to Jessica Brotherson with the Southern Virginia University, that will go towards helping the Buena Vista City Public School Systems (BVCPS). Southern Virginia University is partnering with the BVCPS to help provide school supplies to local children who need additional assistance in purchasing what they will need for this school year. With the $500 donation from Beacon and donations from others, Southern Virginia University is planning to package needed school supplies and deliver them to the school system to hand out as needed.

 

Most people use their credit card for buying stuff. Seems logical right. Well, here's a few untraditional life hacks and silly ways you can use that tiny piece of plastic...

In celebration of your community and in support for the Children's Miracle Network, Beacon has added a brand new event to our calendar for 2017.

On August 26th, we'll be presenting the 7th Annual Love of Children Ball, which honors Dr. Rachel Gagen. Proceeds from this event will help create a special pod within the Virginia Baptist NICU to treat babies who're born with substance dependencies. 

At Beacon Credit Union, we strive to make community an integral part of our philosophy. We support charitable organizations by offering funds, volunteers and time to their events and fundraisers. With that being said, how does Beacon choose the charities we support?

We can answer that with one word… children.
