Credit Union supports Southside Center for Violence prevention

Virginia Credit Union has made a $2,500 contribution to the Southside Center for Violence Prevention (SCVP) following the recommendation of an advisory council of Virginia Credit Union members from the Farmville area.

The SCVP is a nonprofit organization that provides free, confidential and comprehensive services to those affected by sexual and domestic violence. The organization serves the counties of Amelia, Brunswick, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Dinwiddie, Halifax, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Nottoway, Powhatan and Prince Edward. It aims to empower survivors and create a community free from violence for anyone affected by sexual and/or domestic violence, regardless of age, gender or culture.

The contribution will help the organization meet community needs by providing shelter, counseling, and education to those impacted by domestic violence.
