Meet Vicki, a Proud Keystone Business Partner

Vicki, Keystone Business Partner

Vicki and TopLine Credit Union are proud to partner with Keystone

TopLine Federal Credit Union has been a Keystone Business Partner for more than five years. Vicki Roscoe Erickson, Vice President of Marketing, says they got involved with the Business Partner program because “we share with Keystone a cooperative spirit dedicated to making a difference in the communities we serve.”

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, and have volunteered in our 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 local individuals and families succeed,” says Vicki.

Keystone’s Programs are Essential: 

As you know, the Governor Walz issued an Executive Order directing Minnesotans to “Stay At Home” through April 10th. Keystone is an “essential” business and is part of the Twin Cities’ critical sector response to COVID-19. With this information, we will continue to operate our food shelf, crisis services, meals on wheels and case management programs that support our most vulnerable residents in St. Paul.  The executive order also defines “workers” and “personnel” as employees, contractors, vendors and volunteers. This clearly allows our dedicated and wonderful volunteers to continue serving at Keystone during this time. We will have more limited staff in our buildings but remain committed to offering vital support to those who need it.

Programs that are available to the community:

Our youth afterschool programs and active senior programs are cancelled as well as any large gatherings in our community centers. The Express Bike Shop is also closed to the public at this time.

We are actively monitoring the situation and will implement any additional strategies when necessary. Stay tuned for updates as things are rapidly changing.

We are relying on facts to inform thoughtful decision-making in an ever-evolving situation. Keystone is committed to providing services in safe, healthy environments for all of our participants, volunteers, and staff. During this time of heightened awareness, we are maintaining our thorough cleaning and food safety standards and expanding them as necessary.
