Envision's card rewards net $10k for students
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (3/17/14)--Envision CU, Tallahassee, Fla., will fill bellies with food all spring break this school year, thanks to the $10,000 it generated through its Swipe for Schools credit card rewards program.

The $10,000 donation, which will pay for students to buy one book and receive three meals per day for the entire 10-day spring break holiday, was presented last week to America's Second Harvest of the Big Bend, a Tallahassee-based food bank (Leon County Schools March 13).

Members of the $268 million-asset credit union earned five cents for the program for every purchase they made with VISA cards throughout the school year.

"We launched the Swipe for Schools program to provide our members with a way to make a meaningful contribution to the students in our community," said Envision President/CEO Darryl Worrell. "We're so honored to be able to send these meals and books home with these students over the holiday."

Envision plans to run the program again next year, due to this year's success. 

"Spring break can be a difficult time for many of our students," said Jackie Pons, Leon County Schools superintendent. "But thanks to Envision, these children will not go hungry."
