Recently they announced that they would offer free music at the Visions Veterans Memorial Arena this summer. They also understand the hardships that many people are going through including volunteers that give of their time, talent, and money.

The Broome County Government Meals-On-Wheels program is one of those organizations that have been affected. Meals on Wheels is a home-delivered meal service available to eligible seniors that are unable to regularly make healthy meals for themselves.

Visions Federal Credit Union Visits Broome County Meals On Wheels

Meals on Wheels drivers receive a small mileage reimbursement but with the price of gas so high, it doesn't cover it all, so Visions decided that they wanted to do something about it.

Visions stopped by several Broome County "Meals on Wheels" locations and handed out $5,000 in gas cards to their volunteers. Volunteers use their own cars to deliver meals and the drivers and the organization hadn't anticipated the rise in gas prices.

The cards were handed out to drivers at many locations including the Binghamton, Chenango Bridge, Conklin/Kirkwood, Harpursville, and Whitney Point offices.
