Electro Savings Credit Union (St. Louis) proudly donated $1,055 to the USO of Missouri, located on the lower level of Terminal 1 at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.
In honor of Veterans Day, the credit union pledged $5 to the USO for each new member account, new loan or new checking account opened at the credit union during the month of November.
“Electro Savings is very proud to support our military with this donation. Our active duty, veterans, and their families sacrifice so much for us through their service. Supporting the USO is one way that we can give back to them," says Stan Moeckli, president of Electro Savings Credit Union.
