Suitland, Maryland (PRWEB) January 09, 2015
Andrews Federal Credit Union partnered with the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) to present $5,000 in gift cards to the Joint Base Andrews Fisher House. Andrews Federal raised $3,000 through a Skip-A-Pay loan promotion. In addition, AFFN contributed a generous $2,000; all of which was ultimately distributed to families living at the Fisher House to help defray travel costs and other necessities associated with daily living expenses.
“Andrews Federal is always happy to assist our service members and their families in any way possible,” said Jim Hayes, President & CEO.
For wounded warriors transitioning from war zone or those receiving treatment for other illnesses, the gift cards are a welcomed resource for families while their loved one is getting medical treatment. Fisher House serves as a home-away-from-home for our military heroes by providing a calm and caring atmosphere where families can gain support and encouragement from each other.
