Challenge Accepted: Vermont Federal Participates In The Ice Bucket Challenge

In memory of Vermont Federal’s Board Vice Chairman Gilbert Tabor, who passed away in 2011 of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), the Credit Union challenged their entire staff to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Sweeping the nation, the challenge asks individuals to raise awareness for ALS by taking a video of themselves dumping a bucket of ice water over their heads, sharing the video through social media, donating to the cause and nominating others to do the same.

In the spirit of credit unions and the Ice Bucket Challenge, Vermont Federal nominated New England Federal Credit Union, North Country Federal Credit Union and Vermont State Employee Credit Union to complete the challenge as well. These Credit Unions accepted the challenge and have since nominated nine other local organizations to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Vermont Federal Credit Union donated ten dollars to the local ALS chapter for every staff member who completed the challenge. This, partnered with those we’ve nominated, raised over $5,500 and counting for ALS. See the full video Here and Click Here to learn more about ALS.
