Your credit union is always bustling with activity around the holidays, inviting members to join in as we celebrate the joy of the season and try to spread happiness throughout the community. Here are some of the holliday happenings at Vantage: 

Holiday Giving
This annual program covers a number of charitable opportunities for both members and Vantage staff. Here are a few:

Cardinal Care
We give to the St. Louis Cardinals’ charitable effort in three ways.

  1. Members may choose an anonymous child from the wreaths located in our branch lobbies and donate an age-specific gift.
  2. Employees pay to be involved in holiday dress-down days.
  3. Members/employees donate to change jars in our lobbies. Gifts are then purchased and collected, and a number of Vantage employees participate in the official holiday giving at Busch Stadium.

We also collect canned good contributions in our branches for distribution to the less fortunate.

Warner’s Warm-Up
Remember the Greatest Show On Turf? Well, former Ram’s quarterback Kurt Warner has kept his roots here deep with his drive to help keep the less fortunate warm during the winter months. Gently-used coats and jackets can be dropped off at Vantage branches at specified times in November. This year, Vantage collected 354 coats, bringing the total to 1,457 coats that area credit unions collectively donated to the cause!

Alumni Lights Trip
Our Alumni Club members always look forward to a holiday season kick-off with our Holiday Lights Tour. Comfortable coach buses take the light-seekers to Our Lady of the Snows’ Way of Lights display in Belleville, where they enjoy a delicious buffet meal and drive through a twinkling wonderland of colorful lights. The trip also takes them through Clayton, around the brewery, and through Tilles Park’s famous light display. 

Secret Savers Wagons
Fifteen lucky Secret Savers win a wagon loaded with holiday hapiness. The gift-loaded wagons are all on display in each of our branches. For a chance to win one of the wagons, Secret Savers are automatically given one entry for each day they deposit at least $1 into their Secret Savers savings accounts.

Whew! Yep, it’s busy around Vantage during the holidays. But we’re never too busy to make sure our members are treated to the best possible service. Here’s to a happy and safe holiday season for you and your loved ones!
