San Antonio financial institution’s nonprofit arm donates $2,500 to Catholic charities


The San Antonio-based Security Service Charitable Foundation, the charitable arm of the Security Service Federal Credit Union, donated $2,500 to Catholic Charities of San Antonio to help provide ventilators, food and clothing for seniors low income.

According to an Oct. 4 press release, the donation will help the local organization with its annual fan campaign, Project Cool, and its Adopt-A-Senior program, which provides food for seniors.

Tara Ford, director of marketing communications for Catholic Charities of San Antonio, said in a statement that many residents, especially seniors and people with disabilities, make it through the harsh South Texas summers without air conditioning.

“It’s thanks to generous donations from partners, like the Security Service Charitable Foundation, that we’re able to provide low-income seniors with basic necessities like ventilators,” Ford said.

The release says Project Cool is providing 20-inch fans to low-income seniors and people with disabilities to reduce heat-related illnesses and deaths. The Adopt-A-Senior program provides basic necessities, such as food, ventilators and clothing, to isolated and low-income seniors, the statement added.

Brandy Ralston-Lint, SSFCU’s senior vice president of corporate communications, said Catholic Charities has been known to help meet some of the needs of San Antonio residents.

“Box ventilators, food and clothing will bring great relief to older people who often go without them,” she said.
