Meet Vicki, a Proud Keystone Business Partner

Vicki and TopLine Federal Credit Union are proud to partner with Keystone

TopLine Federal Credit Union is a longtime Keystone Business Partner.  Vicki Roscoe Erickson, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Communications at TopLine and President of the TopLine Credit Union Foundation, explains they got involved as Keystone Business Partner because of a shared value to serving the community.

Vicki says, “I believe TopLine and Keystone share a common mission of finding creative strategies to help those in our communities that need some extra assistance. Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations; we are a financial cooperative and our philosophy is people helping people which aligns directly with the mission of Keystone. We can come together and create that opportunity to give back to those that need a little bit of extra assistance.”

A Variety of Ways to Get Involved

In the time that they’ve been a Keystone Business Partner, TopLine has been an active partner. They have sponsored events, hosted bike drives to benefit Express Bike, done an annual food drive to fill our food shelves, collected school supplies and toys to support Keystone youth, hosted interns through the Career Pathways Program through the Keystone Best Buy Teen Tech Center, and have volunteered in Keystone programs in countless ways.

“The Keystone Business Partner program offers businesses like ours meaningful ways to get involved in the community. We are privileged to partner with Keystone to help people and families succeed,” says Vicki.

Keystone Face Mask Requirement Update

The health and safety of Keystone employees, volunteers and participants is a top priority for us and throughout the pandemic Keystone has followed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidance to ensure we’re doing all we can to keep everyone safe.

New guidance from the CDC states that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks inside or outside.  The State of MN and now the City of Saint Paul have lifted mask mandates.  Due to these changes and following guidance from the CDC, Keystone will no longer require that masks be worn by anyone coming into our sites.  However, following CDC guidance, we strongly recommend face masks are worn by anyone at a Keystone site who is not fully vaccinated. We also support anyone who wants to wear a mask while working, volunteering, or participating at a Keystone site.
