Security Service Charitable Foundation has presented the USO of South Texas with a $10,000 donation that will be used to support training for military transition to civilian life and provide weekly lunches for military and military family events in four South Texas counties: Nueces, Kleberg, Aransas and San Patricio.
In 2013, USO South Texas served more than 10,000 service members and their dependents. "No matter what part of the world I was in, the USO was always around to provide much-needed support. Of all the airports I flew through on my way overseas, I could always count on finding a small USO office with coffee and donuts," said Nancy Allen, president and chief executive officer for USO of South Texas.
"Serving the military is at the very core of our credit union’s mission," said Jim Laffoon, president & CEO of Security Service Federal Credit Union. "We are delighted to be able to provide funding from our charitable foundation for such a worthwhile effort as the USO."
The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further SSFCU's corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union's market areas.
