Positive change begins with little steps
There are heroes everywhere and they come in all sizes. We've been inspired by stories of those 12 and under helping those in their communities, and we want to spotlight them and their efforts.
Introducing: Little Heroes
We're gathering stories of kids 12 and under making a positive impact in their communities. Friends, family, parents, guardians, and even community members can nominate a child – Visions member or not – and we’ll pick a monthly winner and help them with their cause.
Whether it’s a monetary donation, a gift card or items to help with their cause, or even a custom-designed logo for their project – we’ll do our best to help shine a light on what they do and help them make an impact.*
Do you know a Little Hero?
Whether they shovel snow, mow lawns, or raise money for charitable causes, we want to honor them and help them with their work.
Congratulations to Our Newest Little Hero, Quashawn!
Congratulations to Quashawn for being selected as our most recent Little Hero!
Ever since the start of the pandemic, Quashawn has been working to help his fellow classmates stay positive by recording video segments at his school. He also volunteers with SaveeTray, an organization that helps feed the homeless, collects toys to give out to the community, and donates clothing, socks, masks, and cleaning supplies to the Holly Center in Hackensack, NJ. Quashawn continually goes above and beyond in helping people out.
We met with Quashawn at our Ridgewood, NJ office and presented him with a check for $100 to put towards his community efforts. He also received $50 gift cards for Barnes & Noble and Dick's Sporting Goods from Kirby Kangaroo.
Helping your Little Hero grow with Kirby Kangaroo
Did you know that Visions has a Youth Program? From birth to teens and beyond, we're here to help your child grow financially fit.
Kids 12 and under can join the Kirby Kangaroo Club, a program that comes with a youth savings account, special gifts for deposits over $5, and access to the Kirby Kangaroo site, packed with stories, games, coloring pages, and jokes. We even mail them a quarterly newsletter, birthday cards, and host special youth activities all year long!
Best of all, a Kirby Kangaroo account is a fully fledged Visions account. As your child grows up, they'll have access to everything Visions has to offer – checking accounts, debit cards, and a whole lot more.
