Security Service Charitable Foundation donates $13,670 to Homeless Veterans Fellowship
Donation will be used to purchase windows in food pantry and clothing storage building
SAN ANTONIO, TX (February 19, 2020) — The Security Service Federal Credit Union Charitable Foundation is helping veterans by donating $13,670 to Homeless Veterans Fellowship, a Utah-based non-profit organization that administers programs enabling homeless veterans, and veterans at risk of being homeless, to return to self-sufficiency. The donation will be used to purchase new windows for some of the organization’s buildings.
“We’ve been replacing the windows slowly as the original windows are single pane glass and the glaze has long worn off,” explained Jeff Kane, executive director for Homeless Veterans Fellowship. “This generous donation will allow us to have full use of our facility and continue our important work.”
The organization is housed in buildings that are more than 100 years old, and although the apartments where veterans are living have secure windows, the intake office, food pantry, laundry area and clothing donation storage area are still in need of new windows.
“The work of Homeless Veterans Fellowship impacts important members of our community,” said Ben Wiseman, senior vice president of member service—Mountain West Region for Security Service. “Their outreach changes lives. We are honored to provide this donation and look forward to seeing the continued positive effects it will have on veterans and their families.”
Homeless Veterans Fellowship was founded in 1989 to offer a comprehensive set of services designed to address homelessness among veterans. The organization has a transitional housing program, a permanent residence program, and a program for families of veterans. The organization serves all veterans by connecting them to community resources, housing and jobs. Their reach extends throughout Utah and into parts of Wyoming and Idaho.
The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union’s market areas.
