In recognition of the year-long celebration of its 100th Year Anniversary, Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan Association has been inviting its customers to participate in their “Year of Giving.” Customers are asked to write a letter nominating their favorite charity or not-for-profit organization to receive a special donation from the Bank. Hospice, Inc., which serves the terminally ill throughout Ulster and Dutchess counties, was the first not-for-profit to have been chosen by the Bank to be so honored. 

Bank President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Horodyski, was joined by Rose Scala, VP of Operations on March 7 to present a check for $1,500.00 to Hospice Foundation Executive Director Michael Murphy at bank headquarters in Wallkill.

 Upon receiving the check Murphy stated how honored he and the entire staff at Hospice, Inc. were in receiving the donation.

 “We are honored to have been chosen by the Bank to be the first recipient of their “Year of Giving” campaign. We understand that there were two customers who had written heart-felt and compelling letters nominating Hospice to be considered. I want to thank them, as well as the administration at the Bank for their very generous gift. I also want to congratulate Wallkill Valley Savings and Loan for their 100 years of service to the community and wish them one hundred more years of success,” said Murphy.
