SAFE employee talking with military service man; air force base hanger, and SAFE multicolor prize wheel

SUMTER, South Carolina, October 11, 2019 – Active duty and DOD personnel received special thanks from SAFE Federal Credit Union during a recent Military Appreciation Picnic at Shaw Air Force Base.

Lunch was served by community leaders and attendees were treated to free keepsakes from SAFE and other local businesses. 

Participants had fun at the SAFE booth by “spinning the prize wheel” for free gifts. Members of SAFE’s leadership team also personally thanked military personnel for their service and addressed financial questions.

“As a credit union that originated at Shaw Air Force Base, we are so thankful for the sacrifices our military members make and we understand the impact it has on their financial needs,” said Susan Allison, SAFE Federal Credit Union’s Senior Vice President of Member Experience. “We’re here to give them the best service possible. They deserve it!”
