Hanscom AFB, MA (February 1, 2018) –  For the eighth consecutive year, Hanscom Federal Credit Union participated in the Cooperative Credit Union Association’s (CCUA) annual blanket drive to benefit the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. The credit union collected 51 blankets for donation to area families in need.

“Participating in this initiative with the CCUA is important to our credit union,” said Paul Marotta, Hanscom FCU Chairman of the Board. “We operate by the motto of ‘people helping people,’ and this effort reflects that. The need for something as simple as a blanket gets at the reality of homelessness. If there is a way we can help, we will.”

Hanscom Federal Credit Union, headquartered at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts, serves nearly 80,000 members across the country and overseas through 19 branches, over 100,000 service centers and surcharge-free ATMs, 24-hour telephone service and a web-based branch. The credit union holds $1.2 billion in assets.
