Members of American Eagle Financial Credit Union generously contributed $615 to the Operation Fueled by Members campaign held at the Credit Union’s retail branches. The proceeds were donated to Operation Fuel of Hartford for their low income energy assistance programs in the Greater Hartford region. Last November, the Credit Union provided a $2,000 grant to Operation Fuel from its charitable fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.

“We are grateful to receive this donation from the members of American Eagle Financial Credit Union. One hundred percent of the money will go directly into the community to households struggling to pay for the cost of home energy,“ said Brenda Watson, Executive Director of Operation Fuel. “Because of this program, many families will have the ability to stay warm this winter,” added Watson.
