Pensacola, FLA. (June 24, 2020) – The Friends of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization facilitated by Pen Air Federal Credit Union (Pen Air), presented a check in the amount of $50,000 to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) of Pensacola. The presentation was held at Pen Air headquarters in Pensacola.
Since 2000, Pen Air has given more than $580,000 to further the mission of NMCRS at Naval Air Station Pensacola. For twenty years, the credit union has hosted an annual charity golf tournament to raise funds on behalf of the society who is unable to solicit their own funding. The Pensacola society is highly ranked in the nation for receiving the most financial support by its community. While the annual golf tournament was canceled this year due to COVID-19, Pen Air is thankful for sponsors who were able to donate their contributions, named on penair.org/Golf.
The funds given will be used to support the emergency financial needs of our local military and help fund programs like the Visiting Nurse Program in addition to Quick Assistance Loans, Budget for Baby workshops, Emergency Travel Loans, Education Assistance, Health Education and Post-Combat Support, Disaster Relief and Financial Assistance and Counseling.
“Our mission at Pen Air is to enhance lives and military families are a top priority for us,” said Stu Ramsey, President/CEO of Pen Air. “We are here to help our service members always, but especially in times of financial need. It’s important to us that our troops have the financial education and assistance they need so that they can do what they do best, serve and protect our country.”
