Thanks to generosity from Superior Choice Credit Union members, employees, and community members, Honor Flight Northland received a $1,775 donation from SCCU’s November Honor Flight fundraiser.
In honor of Veterans Day, from November 1 through November 30, all branches of Superior Choice Credit Union accepted donations for Honor Flight Northland. Members and community members who made a donation could write their support message on a red, white, or blue Honor Flight Northland slip of paper to decorate branches. SCCU offered to match up to $2,500 in donations.
“With Veterans Day falling in November, we wanted to do a fundraiser that would impact veterans in our service areas — from northeastern Minnesota all the way down to the area around our branch in Mellen, Wisconsin,” Gary Elliott, SCCU President/CEO said. “Honor Flight Northland was the perfect fit. They serve veterans all over our service area, and have made a personal impact on some of our employees’ family members. We’re thrilled that our members and community members rallied behind the cause to make such a large donation.”
