November Community Spotlight

Monday - 10/21/2013, 12:05pm EDT

The Federal News Radio Community Spotlight for November is The PenFed Foundation.

The PenFed Foundation is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization working to meet the unmet financial needs of military members and their families. The nonprofit organization helps support wounded warriors, and provides the military community with financial management assistance and home ownership aid as well as programs to increase financial literacy.

As part of a public-private partnership, the foundation also recently gifted to the Department of Veterans Affairs a new $11 million free hotel for veterans undergoing medical care called the Defenders Lodge.

PenFed (Pentagon Federal Credit Union) covers all labor expenses for the foundation so every dollar donated goes directly to supporting its programs. To make a donation or learn more about the foundation visit
