In honor of National Military Appreciation Month, PenFed, DCUC, and AFFN presented $7,000 worth of AFFN Thank You Cards (prep-paid debit cards) to seven Washington DC Metro Fisher Houses, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Washington DC VAMC and Walter Reed-Forest Glen.

Each gift card valued $50 was presented to military families staying at Fisher Houses in Maryland and DC while their veterans and active-duty service members are receiving medical treatment. This give back opportunity was made possible because of PenFed’s transaction volume on the Armed Forces Financial Network.

Since 2005, 16,080 military families staying at Fisher Houses worldwide have received over $804,000 in DeCA Certifichecks (2005, 2006) and AFFN “THANK YOU” Cards (2007-2018) from the AFFN Military Community Support Program.  Every dollar distributed has proudly assisted military service members, Veterans, and/or military family members and caregivers for care, comfort, food, or transportation related expenses while staying at a Fisher House.
