Kiosk & Display has just returned from the 2013 Georgia Credit Union Affiliates Annual Convention where “helping others” was on everyone’s minds. The theme of “Lending a Helping Hand” rang true and home for a lot of the attendees and served as a great reminder of the true Credit Union mission of believing in members.
A highlight of the general session was an introduction to the amazing mission of Purple Heart Homes (PHH). PHH is dedicated to providing personalized housing solutions for Service Connected Disabled Veterans and their families that are substantial in function, design and quality—homes that are fit to welcome home, and thank, the fighting men and women of America. Each case is different, but in all cases Purple Heart Homes provides at little or no cost to the veteran a “quality of life solution” that creates an injury specific, barrier free-living environment. These solutions can range from remodeling an existing home already owned by the veteran, to creating an entire living space from the ground up.
Additionally, our good client, Peach State Federal Credit Union, is a big supporter of PHH and works hard to ensure that returning vets to the Atlanta area can secure a mortgage without penalties associated with credit issues.
K&D was motivated by the goals behind PHH to make a monetary donation of support on behalf of K&D clients nationwide.
