Submitted by America’s Credit Union
America’s Credit Union (ACU) presented $1,000 in gift cards to the Fisher House on Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) on Tuesday, February 23. These gift cards go directly to military families staying at Fisher House while caring for loved ones at Madigan Army Medical Center. These cards are part of the Armed Forces Financial Network’s (AFFN) ‘Thank You’ Card program, which is similar to a gift card; however, the card is a PIN-based ATM/POS card, which can be used for purchases of food, comfort items and necessities, at Commissaries (DeCA), the Exchanges/BX/PX (AAFES), or at any of the 1.3 million retail/merchant locations accepting AFFN Point-of-Sale for payment worldwide.
