Donation helps Children’s Hospital Emergency Department

Security Service Federal Credit Union’s Charitable Foundation donates $10,000

SAN ANTONIO, TX (December 4, 2014) — Security Service Federal Credit Union (SSFCU) is giving back to the community to help the children of South Texas.  The Credit Union’s Charitable Foundation donated $10,000 to Driscoll Children’s Hospital to help with the renovation of the Emergency Department.

“Taking a child to the emergency department can be very stressful on a family,” says Jim Laffoon, President and CEO of Security Service Federal Credit Union.  “This renovation will provide a larger, more comfortable area for the children and families who need emergency care.”

Each year more than 35,000 children are seen in the Driscoll Children’s Hospital Emergency Department.  The 189 bed hospital serves children and families from across South Texas to include Corpus Christi, the Rio Grande Valley, Victoria and Laredo.

“We’re so honored that Security Service Federal Credit Union thought of us when they made this donation,” Driscoll Children’s Hospital’s Vice President of Development Martha Avery said. “Our mission is to help the children of South Texas, and we’re proud that Security Service Federal Credit Union is helping us with that mission.

The complete renovation project is estimated to cost $14 million and will add 5,000 square feet to the emergency department as well as increasing the size of the front lobby.
