Insight Credit Union supports local veterans in Central Florida
ORLANDO, FL (February 18, 2015) – Insight Credit Union donated more than 1,600 items and hundreds of handmade valentines to the Orlando VA Medical Center in time for Valentine’s Day.
Each year, Insight members and employees collect soap, toothpaste, combs, razors, socks, puzzles, books and other much needed toiletries for veterans. In addition, Insight partners with local elementary schools to collect hundreds of Valentine’s Day cards and crafts made by students.
Insight holds this initiative each year to support the Department of Veterans Affairs’ National Salute to Veteran Patients Program. The purpose of this weeklong program, occurring the week of February 14, is to pay tribute to veterans and increase community awareness of the VA medical center. This marks the 17th year Insight has participated in the program and the seventh year Insight has encouraged local students to get involved.
“Our 17th Annual Valentines for Veterans was a success and we’re so thankful to everyone who participated,” said Melissa Boyink, ICU marketing director, “Through this initiative, we are able to give back to our brave veterans and show them how much we value their service and sacrifices.”
