Victory Credit Union in purchase process

Weston’s 70 year-old Victory Credit Union has been purchased by another credit union (subject to regulatory approval). The merger will give Victory members access to another branch in downtown that will be capable of providing more banking services than those currently enjoyed.

VCCU raising money for flood victims in Peru

The good people at the VCCU (Weston’s finest credit union) are raising money for flood victims in Peru. If you would like to donate, you can do so in the branch until next Friday. Should you wish a tax receipt, you can donate online.

CCA’s partner in Peru, Norandino Co-operative, says that several of its cacao producer families and communities have seen homes destroyed, product washed away, limited mobility and increasingly limited/interruptions with water, electricity and internet. One of the major roads leading out of the city was blocked the other day with a river of water running through it. There have also been reports of an increase in mosquitos and mosquito born illnesses, including dengue. 

“We have lost everything, but we have life and the strength to start over,” says Norandino president Santiago Paz López. “We just need a helping hand to get our lives back.”

VCCU moving to new digs

The Victory Community Credit Union, Weston’s loveliest bankers and generous sponsors of Natalie, will be moving on March 3 to a new location.

The new location will be 2011 Lawrence Ave West suite 11.

The credit union will be closed today and tomorrow for the move.
