Kirtland Federal Credit Union Donates $1,000 to Veterans’ Foundation

Albuquerque, NM

The Kirtland Federal Credit Union elves are busy this December! Kirtland Federal Credit Union (KFCU) surprised local organization Honor Flight of Northern New Mexico with a $1,000 donation to help continue their mission in 2022. Honor Flight representative Adeline Herrera said the donation will cover one guardian fee for a veteran traveling on an Honor Flight to visit Washington D.C.

“A lot of the time, our veteran family members cannot afford the $1,000 fee for the trip,” Herrera said. “We can keep this donation in our pocket for our next flight to assist a veteran in need.”

Kirtland FCU President and CEO, Matt Rarden, joined in the surprise presentation along with Rick Crocker, Senior Vice-President of Marketing and Sharlene East, Executive Vice-President and COO.

“This is just a small way we can say happy holidays to important organizations like Folds of Honor,” said Crocker. “Hopefully, gifts like these add up to make a big impact with our veterans and their families.”

Kirtland FCU plans to make more surprise donations this December to partner charities and organizations.
