Although DuGood Federal Credit Union’s branches were closed on Veterans Day, the credit union’s employees were hard at work serving the military throughout Southeast Texas.

On Nov. 11, roughly 120 DuGood employees dispersed throughout Southeast Texas to greet veterans and their families, hand out flags, and spend time celebrating with elderly and homeless vets. They visited locations like Magnolia Cemetery, Henry’s Place, Veterans Memorial Park and Bridge, Applebee’s, and several area nursing homes with one mission in mind: honoring past and present veterans for their service.

“It really is an honor to be able to give back to our local veterans,” DuGood President and CEO Jada Kelley said. “These men and women fought so bravely for our freedom and protection. I can’t imagine what our country would be like without their sacrifice. We hope these small acts of kindness brightened their day and let them know how much we truly appreciate them.”

DuGood’s staff and members also assembled over 700 “blessing bags” with toiletries, Kleenex, socks, and hand-written letters to encourage veterans in need.

Throughout the day, the credit union rallied around the hashtag #DuGoodForVeterans on social media. To see their employees in action, visit their Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages. For more information about the credit union and all of their community efforts, visit www.dugood.org.
