Island Federal Credit Union is such a huge part of the Hope For The Warriors® community on Long Island.
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Island Federal Credit Union (Island) (http://www.islandfcu.com) offered a special “Dog Tag” Promotion to raise funds and awareness for the growing needs of service members and military families. Island members had the opportunity to purchase $1 “Dog Tags” from any of the seven Island branches, raising more than $7,500 for Hope For The Warriors®, a national nonprofit dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.
The “Dog Tag” Promotion ran throughout the summer and ended over Labor Day weekend. Island displayed the “Dog Tags” throughout each branch, providing their members the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment and support for the sacrifices of our service members.
Although they are longtime supporters of Hope For The Warriors®, this is the first year that Island has supported Hope For The Warriors® through promotional endeavors. Island has branches in Bellmore, Hicksville, Massapequa, Riverhead, Sayville, Selden, and a main office in Hauppauge. Each branch surpassed its fundraising goal, and the Hicksville location led fundraising efforts by raising $2,259 for the promotion.
“Island Federal Credit Union is such a huge part of the Hope For The Warriors® community on Long Island,” said Tina Atherall, Executive Vice President of Hope For The Warriors®. “They gave their members the chance to give back to our military, and we are humbled and ecstatic that their fundraising goal was tripled.”
Island Federal Credit Union will sponsor the 7th Annual Long Island Run For The Warriors® on Sunday, November 9, 2014 in Lindenhurst, Long Island. For more information on the Long Island Run For The Warriors®, visit http://www.hopeforthewarriors.org/2014LIRun.
