PLYMOUTH, Minn. (December 13, 2022) - To support veterans during November, TruStone Financial Credit Union employees raised $500 for Tee It Up for the Troops with its Casual for a Cause fundraiser and the TruStone Financial Foundation contributed an additional $5,000. This company-wide fundraiser gives employees the opportunity to wear jeans in exchange for a donation to a designated charity.
Tee It Up for the Troops is a national non-profit organization, headquartered in Minnesota, supporting programs that deliver critically needed services to help veterans transition from the battlefront to the home front. Tee It Up for the Troops focuses on six core pillars that positively impact veterans including PTSD support, Employment, Suicide Prevention, and Sports Rehabilitation. “We are honored to receive such a generous donation from TruStone – especially during National Veterans and Military Families Month - to help support our mission and America’s veterans,” says Tim Wegscheid, President and Executive Director of Tee It Up for the Troops.
“We strive to make a direct impact in our communities,” says TruStone Financial Foundation Chairman, Samuel Stern. “The employee contributions, along with the donation from the TruStone Financial Foundation, will bring well-deserved support to the veterans who need it most.”
