Ft. Leavenworth, KS – Frontier Community Credit Union made a second contribution from its Surviving Spouse and Family Member program to support the Center of Valor and Remembrance at Fort Leavenworth. The credit union donated $1,500 in honor of the families of fallen soldiers.
Frontier Community CU’s contribution was once again matched with a $1,500 grant from the Armed Forces Financial Network. In the past two years, the organizations have partnered to award a total of $6,000 in support of the Fort Leavenworth community.
On hand to accept the gift were Army Community Services Director Vicki Hamlin and Fort Leavenworth Survivor Outreach Services Coordinator Sharon Adams. Hamlin was excited about the programs this year’s donation would support, stating "(The Center of Valor and Remembrance) is a very special location established for the survivors to visit, receive services and maintain the connection with the Army.”
The funding supports ongoing opportunities to create scrapbooks and display miniature flag cases imprinted with fallen service members’ information. A portion of the funds will be used to purchase recognition items for children of fallen soldiers for April's Month of the Military Child.
"We are proud to have initiated this program and, with the support of AFFN, honored to have the opportunity to broaden services available to families of the fallen here in our community,” said Frontier Community CU President and CEO Bill Hauber.
