Purdue Federal Donates To Indiana Veterans’ Home

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (February 15, 2013) – Valentine’s Day is known for deliveries of all kinds to those we love, and this year Purdue Federal Credit Union (Purdue Federal) staff delivered a special gift to the Indiana Veterans’ Home—a check for $2,670 to help fund their spring volunteer banquet.

The donated funds were raised during Purdue Federal’s annual Skip-a-Pay promotion, which let members with qualifying loans skip their December 2012 or January 2013 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.
