COLLINSVILLE, Ill. – Demonstrating its support for troops and military families, members of Scott Credit Union recently donated $2,450 to benefit two organizations at Scott AFB, Illinois. The Airmen’s Attic received a check for $1,250 to facilitate their efforts and a gift of $1,200 worth of phone cards was purchased for the Family Support Center at the base. The credit union has been accepting donations in return for magnetic “Support Our Troops” ribbons at its nine branch locations. Scott CU covered the cost of the ribbons so 100% of the proceeds were distributed. The Airmen’s Attic is a clearinghouse for pre-owned clothing and household items. All items are available at no charge for active duty military personnel (E-1 through E-5) and their families that are assigned to Scott AFB. Most of the money raised was used to purchase gift cards to the Commissary that will be given away in drawings to the enlisted service members over the next few months. The remainder of the funds was used to buy a few items that are not normally donated, such as dish sets, toasters, irons, and disposable baby diapers. The Family Support Center is a professional agency that serves as Scott AFB’s focal point for family matters. Some of its programs cover areas such as relocation assistance, family development, personal financial management, and transition assistance. Promoting communication, the phone cards will be given to both deployed military personnel stationed at Scott AFB and to their families.
