Members Surpass Goal of Depositing 12,000 Checks Electronically to Benefit Pediatric Patients
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (September 12, 2013) – NuVision Federal Credit Union announced that it has reached its goal of depositing 12,000 checks electronically this year, and has helped hundreds of children in the process. For every 1,000 checks deposited remotely by members using NuVision’s new Mobile Deposit or MyDeposit features in 2013, NuVision pledged to donate iPad minis to local children’s hospitals (up to 12). The credit union achieved its goal well ahead of schedule – reaching over 12,000 electronic deposits in August after just eight months of starting the program.
With the help of its members, NuVision has donated and delivered 12 iPad minis to Children’s Miracle Network benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC). The iPad minis will be used in playrooms and for educational purposes to help explain medical information to patients and their families.
“We are so appreciative of everyone at NuVision Federal Credit Union for their continued generosity,” said Scott Ferguson, MSW, LCSW, Administrator of Family-Centered Care at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “This meaningful donation of iPad minis will help our Child Life staff bring a new level of educational and developmental support to the patients in our care.”
“We wanted to promote our convenient new Mobile Deposit banking feature in a way that benefited our community,” said L.J. Tarman, Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations at NuVision. “Our members were happy to know that every time they experienced easier banking, they were also helping a child.”
NuVision Mobile Deposit allows members to use their Android or iPhone to take photos of checks and deposit them electronically using a free mobile app. It’s an easy way to deposit checks safely and securely, anytime and anywhere.
Checks deposited with NuVision’s existing MyDeposit feature, in which members can scan and upload checks using NuVision’s online banking website, were also part of the program.
