Community Banking

For all you do and all you bring to your community!

We love being a bank that puts community first!  One of the best parts is watching people within our branch communities come together and do good things for each other.  Our new online video series – We’re Your Biggest Fan gives us the opportunity to brag a little bit about the people and organizations that make up our community.  We also take a moment to share a banking tip in each and every episode too!  We hope you enjoy them!

Episode 4 of We’re Your Biggest Fan is now live and focuses on the community surrounding our Walden branch. 

Here is what you will see in this episode:

Community First
For this episode, Shelia Smith from our Walden Branch talks about a wonderful organization Operation Dalmatian.  Operation Dalmatian is a program that provides gifts during the holiday season to local families who have been nominated and sponsored by the program.  The program, established by the Walden Fire District and Walden Baptist Church collects donations during November and December.  They wrap the gifts and then deliver them to families in need right here in our back yard.  Wallkill Valley Federal Savings & Loan is proud to support Operation Dalmatian!

Better Banking Tip
The second segment features Vice President & Regional Branch Manager Jim DiSalvo talking about how easy it is to bank with Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan.  WVFSL offers many ways to bank without leaving your home including bank by phone, free online banking and free mobile banking. With mobile banking you can pay bills, deposit checks, manage your accounts and transfer funds all from the comfort of your home.

We’re your biggest fan!
Our final segment, we hear from Susan V., a 10 year volunteer at the Walden Humane Society.  WVFSL loves the Walden Humane Society and the feeling is mutual.  Susan shared that she feels the staff at WVFSL are very friendly and not at all stuffy bank people.  She feels that the bank is a place that is interested in everyone.  She also talked about the work they do educating the community and providing a happy environment for people to come find a pet and provide them with a forever home!
