Jul 05, 2017 | Posted in Investor News, News

Erie Federal Credit Union along with the Erie SeaWolves minor league baseball team hosted the 4th annual “Good Deeds Day” at UPMC ballpark. “Good Deeds Day” was developed by Erie FCU and the Erie SeaWolves to offer a day in which Erie area charitable organizations were given the opportunity to create awareness and raise funds at the ballpark. The event took place during the Erie SeaWolves – Altoona Curve game on Saturday July 1st. Erie FCU’s charities of choice were “Project Support Our Troops” and “Embracing Our Veterans”.

In preparation of “Good Deeds Day”, cash and item donations were accepted throughout the entire month of June at Erie FCU’s nine branch offices. Items donated benefitted “Project Support Our Troops” with cash donations assisting the “Embracing Our Veterans” outreach program. “Project Support Our Troops” provides necessary items to help bring a “slice of home” to our loved ones stationed abroad. “Embracing Our Veterans” is a non-profit referral network of local businesses and organizations whose main objective is to help qualifying veterans and their families find discounted or no cost services in Erie and Crawford Counties.

Because of the generosity and ongoing community efforts of the Erie FCU staff and members, team Erie FCU raised $2,500 for “Embracing Our Veterans” along with collecting a van full of food and items for “Project Support Our Troops” which were presented to the organizations during the game. Erie FCU is extremely proud to give back to our veterans and troops this 4th of July weekend and thank them for their service and sacrifice in helping to keep America free!
