“Good Deeds Day” was a huge success! Because of your generosity and ongoing community efforts, team Erie FCU raised $1,520 for “Embracing Our Veterans” along with collecting a van full of food and items for “Project Support Our Troops” to be sent to our brave men and women currently serving overseas. Cash and items donated were presented to the organizations’ representative, Kim Lengling during the Erie SeaWolves “Good Deeds Day” last night at the Jerry Uht ballpark.

Thank you Erie FCU staff and members for your unwavering support! As we lead into our 4th of July weekend, we are proud to give back to the veterans and the members of the armed forces for their service and sacrifice to this great country of ours!! Have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!
