What You Need
at the Container
Part of the fun and thrill behind getting organized
is the idea of buying organization containers to help
with the process. People often want to skip right to
the purchasing before they even know what is going
to go in them. You really should wait, according to
Jensen. She says, "people will often get excited, buy
containers, and realize later that those containers don't
even fit their needs." It's important you know exactly
what the containers are going to be used for, so that
you can purchase the right size and shape to fit your
needs. A further tip from Jensen is to purchase clear
plastic containers, and label one short side and one
long side, for ease of access.
70 Years of Service
to the Roanoke Valley Community
Woody Windley joined Roanoke Valley Community Credit Union RVCCU in 2006 as
President & CEO. His team focuses on providing their members with a "no frills," helpful
experience. As a small, local credit union, their low-cost services are designed to improve
the financial lives of working people. RVCCU began in 1947 as the Roanoke City teacher's
federal credit union, eventually merging with the credit unions of Roanoke County Public
Schools and the Roanoke City Fire Department.
RVCCU offers a unique program for teachers called Summer Pay, which saves a
percentage of their salary throughout the year and accrues interest at a higher rate than
other savings accounts so teachers can get paid during the summer months. Windley
loves that RVCCU helps teachers and educators, as teachers hold a special place for
him-his mother and wife are teachers, and his daughter will soon be a teacher as well!
Another unique program is their student-run branch at William Byrd High School.
Implemented about 10 years ago, students earn class credit for working at the
branch and work with an advisor who is a retired teacher herself.
Windley, a self-admitted technology "junkie," focuses on staying up-to-date with
the latest technology. He says they put a lot into their mobile and internet banking
programs, keeping a great outlook for RVCCU to go another 70 years.
