The $4 billion, Vacaville, Calif.-based Travis Credit Union recently sponsored the Travis Air Force Base (TAFB) Festival of Trees Auction, supporting the TAFB Fisher House in Fairfield, Calif., with a $10,000 contribution from the credit union’s board of directors. The donation will help cover operational costs of the Fisher House, which hosts military members and their families free of charge while receiving extended care at David Grant Medical Center at TAFB. Pictured from left to right are 2nd Lieutenant DeJaye Herrera, 1st Lieutenant Jockey Rojas and 2nd Lieutenant Kayla Simmons, members of the 60th Maintenance Group and Logistics Officer Association at Travis AFB. TCU’s 2020 holiday giving initiatives also included:

  • Participating in “Remember a Vet” (Wreaths across America) by recognizing fallen veterans at the Annual Wreath Project, ensuring each veteran’s gravesite is honored at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery during the holiday season;
  • Sponsoring the TAFB Chapter of Operation Homefront, providing 200 meals to service members and their families;
  • Raising more than $7,100 and sponsoring 142 children as part of the Christmas Wish initiative; and
  • Supporting the Children’s Miracle Network through the 2020 Holiday Stocking Campaign. Instead of hanging paper stockings in branches this year, the Travis Credit Union Foundation created a page on its website to display virtual stockings, each one representing a member donation. One hundred percent of funds raised through Dec. 31 will be distributed to the UC Davis Children’s Hospital and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland, Calif.
