Negaunee, MI July 21, 2016 – We shared the story of Honor Credit Union’s commitment to our local veterans with their matching donations to the U.P. Honor Flight. The deadline for donating to Upper Peninsula was July 22, but Honor Credit Union is extending the donation deadline to July 31st to give everyone in the community a chance to help honor our local veterans.

“It’s a race against the clock to say ‘thank you’ to some of these vets,” Northern Division President Ron Lauren said. “Extending the donation deadline makes sense. It gives us time to raise even more money for them.”

Upper Peninsula Honor Flight is a non-profit organization that provides our veterans with a spectacular “Tour of Honor” through the memorials that were built in their honor in Washington, D.C. The Tour of Honor is completely FREE to the veterans. Airfare, meals, deluxe tour bus, t-shirt, and other items are provided at NO COST to the veterans.

YOU can help make the next Tour of Honor happen for our local veterans! U.P. Honor Flight needs our help! Donations make the Tours of Honor possible for our veterans. Honor Credit Union extended the original deadline to give the community a little bit more time to help our local make this once-in-a-lifetime trip.

The Tour of Honor brings the veterans to the WWII memorial, the Korea Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, and the Air Force Memorial. Veterans then visit Arlington National Cemetery to witness the changing of the guard and pay their respects to the soldiers who didn’t return.

So, stop by Honor Credit Union today and make a donation to support U.P. Honor Flight. You don’t even have to be a member of Honor Credit Union to make a donation. Swing through their drive thru and make a donation. Every donation counts and Honor Credit Union will double your donation by matching it up to $2,500!
