Affinity Appreciates our Armed Forces

Armed Forces Appreciation Month

This November, Affinity shows our appreciation to the armed forces

Armed Forces Appreciation Month

At Affinity, November is known as Armed Forces Appreciation Month, where members, employees, and our community are invited to make charitable contributions to our Veterans Support Fund. All donations received through the Veterans Fund will support three local veterans’ organizations.

Veterans Fund Beneficiaries:

      • Operation Chillout, an all-volunteer homeless veterans outreach organization dedicated to ending the crisis of homelessness for veterans, men and women throughout New Jersey and Northeastern Pennsylvania.
      • Operation Sisterhood, an organization which supports female veterans and their family members through counseling, education, and advocacy.
      • Rockland Homes for Heroes, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide affordable permanent rental housing in Tappan, New York, for displaced and disabled veterans.

Sock & Hat Drive for Operation Chillout

For the month of November, all Affinity Federal Credit Union branches will be accepting items for Operation Chillout’s winter backpack program. Backpacks will be provided to homeless veterans in need as the winter season approaches and temperatures decline, so it is crucial that they receive the proper clothing to face the elements.

Accepted Items
New and Unused Clothing Items Only
  • Wool, Nylon, or Acrylic Heavy Socks
  • Waterproof Non-Leather GoreTex® Gloves
