VACU & Girls for a Change Featured on Virginia Currents


Girls for a change member(Richmond, Virginia – Nov. 10, 2017) — A local nonprofit organization that Virginia Credit Union works with was featured on a public television program produced by the Community Idea Stations.

Girls For A Change, an organization that supports and inspires black girls and other girls of color to visualize their bright futures and potential, was featured on Virginia Currents in early November.

The inspiring segment includes scenes of volunteers painting a mural in Jackson Ward, an event that Virginia Credit Union helped organize with participants from Girls For A Change in October.
