Voyage gives back to the community
As an active member of the community, Voyage FCU takes pride in particpating in events that help to make our community better in any way possible - for all of us. Employees volunteer in various activities throughout the year, including fundraisers, giveaways, donation drives, building homes, blood drives, and so much more.
Avera Race Against Breast Cancer
We have been sponsoring the Avera Race Against Breast Cancer for 4 years now and we like to try new and fun ways to engage the attendees on race day. For the past two years, while participants were there they took a pic in front of our “hashtag wall” and were encouraged to connect with us online and share their stories about their fight. For every picture taken, comment made and share to our Facebook page we would donate an additional $1 to Breast Cancer Research. In 2015, we donated $500 after all the pictures and onsites were done.
Habitat For Humanity
For four wonderful years, Voyage Federal Credit Union joined forces with six local business partners helping to build and renovate homes with Habitat for Humanity right here in Sioux Falls. A BIG THANKS to our partners at Avera Hospital, Raven Industries, Orion Foods, Lewis Drug, CenturyLink and Volunteers of America – Dakotas for working alongside us to help Habitat provide safe, decent and affordable housing to families in our community.
Sioux Falls Area Humane Society
This year we will again join forces with the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society to raise funds for all the little (and big) critters that they help out. In recent years, we have been a sponsor at their golf event, “Fore the Animals” and had a vendor booth at their annual, “Bark in the Park” event. Join us on Saturday, August 25th at Pasley Park for the 2018 Bark in the Park and get a photo taken with your favorite furball!
One of our favorite past events was during our 75th Anniversary and we delightfully called it, “75 Days of Fur”. We spent three days at the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society between October and November taking pictures of people with their animals, with $1 per photo going to the Humane Society. The credit union was pleased to present a check for $500 after hundreds of photos, shares on social media, and dozens of stories submitted to help out the furry friends at the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society.
