Sharon Adams, Fort Leavenworth Survivor Outreach Services Coordinator, accepts a $3,000 check from Bill Hauber, Frontier Community Credit Union President.
LEAVENWORTH, Kan. – Frontier Community Credit Union made a third contribution from its Surviving Spouse & Family Member program to support the Center of Valor and Remembrance at Fort Leavenworth.
The credit union donated $1,500 and had a matching contribution of $1,500 from the Armed Forces Financial Network for a total contribution of $3,000. In the past three years, the organizations have partnered to award a total of $9,000 in support of the families of fallen soldiers.
On hand to accept the gift was Fort Leavenworth Survivor Outreach Services Coordinator Sharon Adams. The funding supports ongoing opportunities to create scrapbooks and display miniature flag cases imprinted with fallen service members’ information. A portion of the funds were used to purchase recognition items for children of fallen soldiers for April's Month of the Military Child.
“We are proud of our Surviving Spouse and Family Member program,” said Frontier Community Credit Union President Bill Hauber. “With the support of the Armed Forces Financial Network, everyone at the credit union is honored to have the opportunity to broaden services available to families of the fallen here in our community.”
Frontier Community Credit Union has more than $113 million in assets and serves more than 11,000 members. Anyone who lives or works in Leavenworth, Atchison, Jefferson, Douglas, Johnson and Wyandotte Counties, as well as active or retired military and Federal Civil Service personnel who reside within a 100-mile radius of Fort Leavenworth is eligible to join Frontier Community Credit Union.
