WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (February 21, 2014) — Purdue Federal Credit Union (Purdue Federal) staff recently delivered a special gift to Home with Hope, Inc.—a check for $2,660 to help with electrical upgrades. Home with Hope is the only facility in the Lafayette area that provides structured living and transitional services for alcoholics and addicts who are committed to the Twelve Step, self-help recovery program.

The donated funds were raised during Purdue Federal’s annual Skip-a-Pay promotion, which lets members with qualifying loans skip their December 2013 or January 2014 loan payment for a small administrative fee. Each year a portion of that fee is donated to a local charity. The promotion benefits members by alleviating some financial stress around the holidays as well as the community through a charitable contribution to a local nonprofit organization.
