LEAVENWORTH, Kan., Nov. 20, 2017 – Frontier Community Credit Union has again donated $3,000 from its Surviving Spouse & Family Member program to support the Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) program at Fort Leavenworth. The program is part of the post’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation.

The credit union made a $1,500 contribution, and the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) made a matching donation of $1,500. This is the sixth straight year the credit union has made the donation with matching AFFN funds. In total, the two organizations have raised $18,000 for the program.

“We recognize the sacrifices our soldiers make to keep our nation free,” says Frontier Community Credit Union President Michael J. Augustine. “But, we also recognize the sacrifices made by members of the soldiers’ families. Our credit union staff and volunteers are proud to play a role in broadening the number of support services available to local military families who have suffered a loss.”

“We value our partnerships with sponsors like Frontier Community Credit Union,” says John M. Broda, AFFN President & CEO. “We thank them for taking care of our fellow citizens, our U.S. service members and their families.”

Frontier Community Credit Union has more than $130 million in assets and serves more than 11,700 members. Anyone who lives or works in Leavenworth, Atchison, Jefferson, Douglas, Johnson and Wyandotte counties, as well as active or retired military and Federal Civil Service personnel who reside within a 100-mile radius of Fort Leavenworth are eligible to join Frontier Community Credit Union.
