We are thrilled to announce that VyStar Credit Union broke a company record during its March of Dimes fundraising campaign last month: As a company, we raised a total of $114,259.02—more than we’ve ever raised before! The fundraising event culminated with the March for Babies walk, which was held on May 6, 2017. 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 of our fundraising efforts.
