CUNA CUAC break ground in Homes for Troops project
DENVER, Colo. (4/11/08)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the Credit Union Associations of Colorado (CUAC) and Wyoming (CUAW) were on hand Thursday for the groundbreaking of a Denver-area home for wounded Iraq-war veteran Staff Sgt. Travis Strong and his family. The home is part of Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit organization that builds specially adapted homes for severely wounded American troops. The home, located in Golden, is part of a joint project with the Democratic National Convention Committee, the credit union movement, and National Journal Group. The home will be presented to Strong and his family around this summer's Democratic National Convention. CUNA Chairman Tom Dorety, CEO of Suncoast Schools FCU, Tampa, Fla., said, "Credit unions operate under a 'People Helping People' philosophy, and this project is one way we can live out that philosophy. We are honored to participate in this special effort on behalf of a very deserving soldier and his family." John Dill, president/CEO of CUAC and CUAW, added, "Credit unions here in Colorado are excited to take part in this project. We look forward to working closely with Homes for Our Troops and the convention staff to make this dream a reality." CUNA and CUAC/CUAW will work to raise funds, provide donated materials and volunteer labor, and coordinate activities closely with Homes for Our Troops. CUNA, the Minnesota Credit Union Network, and National Journal also are working with Homes for Our Troops and the Republican National Committee on a companion project in Minnesota during the Republican National Convention. Groundbreaking for that project is planned for April 28 in St. Paul, Minn.
