SSFCU Charitable Foundation Awards Grant to USO Texas
Tuesday, June 11, 2013 4:35 AM

The Security Service Charitable Foundation awarded USO South Texas, INC (USOSTX) with a $10,000 grant to support active duty military families at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi and Naval Air Station Kingsville. The check was presented on behalf of the Foundation by Mike Martinez, senior vice president of military affairs for Security Service FCU (SSFCU) and Jim Bounds, area director of business development for SSFCU’s South Texas region and USOSTX board member.  

“We're pleased to support deserving organizations, like the USO of South Texas, that make a positive difference in the lives of military members and their families," said Jim Laffoon, Security Service FCU president.  "This donation is a small token of our appreciation for all that our military men and women do for this country."

“The grant from the Security Service Charitable Foundation is most appreciated as we are upgrading our computer systems that are used by our troops for air training or to send a loving message home to mom or a special someone,” stated Nancy Allen, USO President and CEO. “There are many ways the USO serves our military and without the continued support of dedicated sponsors like Security Service things would be very quiet in our USO Center.” 

The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps to further SSFCU's corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union's market areas.
