Jacksonville, NC (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Marine Federal Credit Union held their annual Marine Federal Credit Union Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, April 26, 2013 at the Jacksonville Country Club. Proceeds from the event benefited Hope For The Warriors® and the Onslow County USO. The event was a huge success and Marine Federal Credit Union donated $75,000 to each nonprofit at the end of a fun day of golf.
This is the fourth year that Hope For The Warriors® was included in the annual event. With the donation on Friday, Marine Federal has now donated more than $333,000 to Hope For The Warriors®. In addition, the company invites wounded service members to play in the tournament. This is just one of many opportunities that the company provides for wounded service members and veterans in Onslow County. This generosity begins with Craig Chamberlin, president, and is shared by all of the credit union’s employees.
“Marine Federal Credit Union, led by Craig Chamberlin, has made a strong, unwavering commitment to our organization, to our military families, and to our entire military community,” Robin Kelleher, Hope For The Warriors® President said. “This commitment gives Hope For The Warriors® the ability to restore self, family and hope to our wounded service members.”
