Daleville, Ala. (May 26, 2011) — Army Aviation Center Federal Credit Union (AACFCU) presented a donation of $15,000 to Fort Rucker’s Army Emergency Relief (AER) Fund at the 2011 AER Campaign Closing Ceremony on May 23rd. Funds were primarily raised from AACFCU’s Annual Golf Tournament held each year at Silver Wings Golf Course at Fort Rucker. All proceeds from the golf tournament were donated to AER.

AER is the Army’s own emergency financial assistance program dedicated to helping active and retired soldiers when there is a vital need. In 2010, Fort Rucker’s AER gave loans and grants to local soldiers totaling $250,495.

The $15,000 donation also included a matching grant of $1,500 from the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN). AACFCU has been fortunate to receive matching grants from AFFN for the past six years.
