During September, TFCU will raise funds for Project Oklahoma Heroes. The money raised is used to help disabled veterans and other service heroes in the community in need of a little assistance. This fundraising, along with our team of employee volunteers, allows us to complete basic yard work, clean-up, fence repair, basic home upgrades or minor renovation type projects, to provide better access or increase the recipient’s quality of living. Some of the things we have already been able to help selected veterans with include repairing or building fences, yard work, clean-up, roof repair, door widening, accessible cabinets and a room extension. Project Oklahoma Heroes is a philanthropic project of the Tinker Federal Credit Union Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.
Last year, we raised over $23,000 to support Project Oklahoma Heroes. We completed the last of four disabled veterans’ home renovations for better accessibility that started in 2016. This year, we hope to be able to assist even more of our heroes in the communities we serve who are in need of a little help. If you would like to support this cause with a donation, visit any TFCU branch and look for the Project Oklahoma Heroes donation jar or take part in each locations creative fundraising efforts.
