Say “Thank You” to our troops overseas

Help us collect 20,000 handwritten thank you letters

SAN DIEGO, CA (November 2, 2017) — This holiday season, 190,000 troops will be deployed overseas. That’s 190,000 families that won’t get to share turkey, exchange gifts and spend time together. As a thank you to these brave men and women, San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, is teaming up with the Kramer and Geena Morning Show on Channel 933 and A Million Thanks to send 20,000 thank you letters to these troops!

Now through November 18, anyone can visit any of SDCCU’s 43 convenient branch locations to take a few minutes to write a handwritten thank you letter on our custom Big Thank You letterhead.

“We encourage the entire community to stop by any SDCCU branch to write a thank you letter to show appreciation for the active military serving our country overseas during this holiday season. This small gesture is bound to produce a big smile,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.

The mission of A Million Thanks is to provide support and appreciation to our active and veteran military men and women through sending letters and granting betterment of life wishes, as well as providing higher education scholarships to their children. Since its creation in 2004, A Million Thanks has distributed more than seven million letters to troops stationed around the world.
