Pen Air Federal Credit Union raises $4,000 for the Gulf Coast Veterans Advocacy Council

PENSACOLA, FL (October 21, 2015) — Pen Air Federal Credit Union presented the Gulf Coast Veterans Advocacy Council (GCVAC) with a check for $4,000 from funds raised through Pen Air FCU employee Jeans for Generosity Days and other fund raising efforts.

The presentation was made at the Pen Air Federal Credit Union corporate office with staff, some of which were veterans as well, to commemorate the event. Representatives from GCVAC were on hand to accept the check and take photos with Pen Air FCU staff and management. The donation will help fund the 2015 Stand Down annual event that provides services and information to local homeless veterans and families of veterans. The event provides items such as health screenings, legal assistance, clothing, cold weather gear, and hot meals.

The GCVAC facilitates programs to end veteran homelessness. They work to see every veteran receives mental and physical care and assist with the adjustment to civilian life. The GCVAC develops programs for disabled veterans, help veterans obtain benefits, and help with veteran education and employment.

Pen Air FCU President/CEO, Stewart Ramsey explains, “Pen Air Federal Credit Union is proud to support the Gulf Coast Veterans Advocacy Council. Each year, our internal Charitable Events Committee sends out a survey to staff asking for their input on local charities to support and the this year the Gulf Coast Veterans Advocacy Council was one of the charities chosen.”
