Submitted by America’s Credit Union
October 25th, 2012 – America’s Credit Union (ACU) was awarded the 2012 Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) matching grant as part of AFFN’s Military Community Support Program. The combined contribution was donated to the Fisher house on JBLM.
Since ACU’s beginning in 1954 they have been an active part of the credit union community. When they learned of the opportunity for a matching grant they jumped at the chance to work with AFFN. Ken Leonard, ACU President/ CEO said “sincere collaboration is the only and best way to impact both our members and our community.”
The Fisher House’s mission is to provide our service members and their families a comfortable, nurturing and secure environment while they receive medical care at Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC).
The donation will be used to improve the facility, provide amenities for the guests, celebrate holidays, and enhance the range of services provided. ACU has been an avid supporter for many years now and is proud to contribute.
