Homeless Teens Receive Christmas Wishes from FAA Credit Union Employees
Tuesday, December 9, 2014 7:00 AM

This holiday season is looking a little brighter for ten homeless teens. For the fifth consecutive year, FAA Credit Union employees helped fulfill the Christmas lists of these teens, all participants in Youth Services for Oklahoma County’s Supporting Kids in Independent Living (SKIL) program.

FAA CU employees provided items on the students' wish lists, including toiletries, bedding, clothing, and household items. Knowing Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a few not-so-practical gifts, employees also provided headphones, TVs, games, music, and trendy clothing/shoes.

"Each year, we ask our employees to help make these teens' wishes come true, and each year I'm impressed with the generosity of our employees," states Steve Rasmussen, president and CEO of FAA Credit Union. "They see the need, and they continue to open their hearts to these young adults facing issues no teen should have to face."

Rasmussen goes on to say, "We're proud of the partnership we've formed with Youth Services for Oklahoma County, and we wish the best for the teens as they pursue their dreams."

Teens in the SKIL program became homeless through no fault of their own, and they are dedicated to completing high school and furthering their education. Students work with the SKIL program to help meet their immediate needs and receive support and guidance as they navigate their way through school, work, and maintaining a household.*

This is just one more way FAA CU is serving the community. With headquarters in Oklahoma City and seven branches in the greater Oklahoma City area, FAA CU has been serving members for more than sixty years. Today, the Credit Union has more than 48,000 members in Canadian, Cleveland, Grady, Lincoln, Logan, McClain, Oklahoma, and Pottawatomie counties. Membership is open to anyone who resides, works, worships, or attends school in our eight-county service area. FAA CU has assets in excess of $550 million. Learn more at www.faaecu.org.
