Neches Federal Credit Union raises $3K for Wounded Warriors

PORT NECHES — Neches Federal Credit Union raised $3,159 to support the Wounded Warrior Family Foundation.

The funds were raised by way of a 5K, seven-mile bike ride and one-mile walk/run that the credit union hosted Monday at Port Neches Park.

The 5K event was promoted and hosted internally by Neches FCU, and employees were encouraged to ride their bike, walk, or run.

Every donation contributed by the Neches FCU team was matched by the credit union.

More than 165 representatives from Neches FCU, including its board of directors and employees, convened at 8:30 a.m. on Veterans Day to kick off the festivities.

“We wanted to provide an event that both our board and staff could feel proud of in regards to saluting the veterans that bravely serve our country,” said Jason Landry, president/CEO of Neches FCU.
