Coosa Pines FCU supporting unit in Iraq
CHILDERSBURG, Ala. (1/10/08)--Four branches of Coosa Pines FCU have joined in Operation Troop Support to support the National Guard 621st Troop Support Command Unit, stationed in Taji, Iraq. The branches at Sylacauga, Childersburg, Pell City and Chelsea, Ala., have been sending care packages full of snacks, candy, personal hygiene products, phone cards, games, puzzles, movies and other items to troops since November (The Daily Home Jan. 9). "We really want to do more than business in our community," said Aimee Morris, Pell City branch manager, told the newspaper. "We want to be of service to our community, seeking out and filling needs wherever we can." A soldier in the unit, Sgt. 1st Class John McDaniel of Childersburg, said the unit is thankful to get the donations. "The care packages have a great impact. A lot of times the care packages are the only way we can get these types of items," he said. The credit union staff and members of the community have donated enough to send a care package to the soldiers twice a month. Morris said the program will continue until the 30-member unit returns home. The $150.1 million asset credit union hopes to have a community-wide welcome home party when they return.
