FAYETTEVILLE, NC – Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union presented a $3,000 check to Support Military Spouses, the nation’s only program dedicated to collecting and distributing shoebox gifts to military spouses. The Shoeboxes for Military Spouses event was held at the Cross Creek Mall in Fayetteville, NC. Approximately 2,000 shoeboxes were delivered to deserving military spouses. In addition to the check, Fort Bragg FCU also donated items that were included in each container. Support Military Spouses expresses gratitude towards military spouses for their daily sacrifices and recognizes these brave individuals each year as we celebrate Military Spouse Appreciation Day, which takes place each year on the Friday before Mother’s Day. Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union was thankful to be a part of this heartwarming event.
“Military spouses often think that no one appreciates them or sees all their daily sacrifices, but this organization reminds them that everyone does care, and we are truly appreciative for everything they do for our servicemen and women. They are true heroes,” said David Elliott, Fort Bragg FCU President/CEO.
