Rock Valley Credit Union Raises Funds for Rockford Juneteenth
Throughout the month of June, RVCU employees ran their own Penny Wars contest to help raise money for a non-profit in the Rockford community that is working towards positive change. Each branch competed to see who could raise the most funds.
On July 7th, RVCU team members surprised Tommy Meeks, President of Inner City Reconstruction Group and Founder of Rockford Juneteenth, with the funds raised from the Penny Wars competition to help support Rockford Juneteenth. Tommy has been organizing Rockford Juneteenth for more than 30 years, which is a celebration for all races commemorating the day the slaves were freed in the south.
