Coins for Community - Virginia Beach Rescue Squad Foundation

Your spare change can help your community!

The Virginia Beach Rescue Squad Foundation supports an independent and vital emergency medical care and transport system - one of the largest in the country that relies predominantly on well-trained, skilled and dedicated volunteers.

Some 1,000 men and women from every walk of life serve the community under the direction of the City of Virginia Beach EMS Department. There are ten squads altogether throughout the 255-square mile wide city, the 41st most populous in the nation with nearly 440,000 residents. Each squad is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that finances its operational needs through individual fundraising. As a result, pre-hospital emergency medical care in the City of Virginia Beach is free to all and contributes to over $22-million in annual cost savings to the taxpayers.

Our coin machines are located at both our Thalia and Princess Anne branches. The machines count coins which you can deposit into your account or get cash back. Best of all, the coin machines take loose change, meaning you’ll never have to roll coin again!

There is a nominal fee for using the coin machines. Members are charged 2% of coin deposit, and guest members pay 4% of coin deposit. Rather than keeping the fee income, though, we are matching and donating all collected fees to our Coins for Community partner.
