Security Service Charitable Foundation has presented Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Antonio with a $25,000 donation that will be used to build a bedroom in the Ronald McDonald House located inside the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. This house is currently being expanded from 10 bedrooms to 16, with a second house under construction to accommodate another 21 families.

Ronald McDonald House Charities provides safe, temporary living accommodations for families while their children are receiving critical medical treatment in the San Antonio area. The houses provide families a quiet place to regroup, rest and gather strength so they can help their children heal.
“The house at the Children’s Hospital is significant in many ways,” says Jim Laffoon, president & CEO of Security Service Federal Credit Union. “It was the first worldwide to be located within a hospital. But most importantly – it places a family just steps from their child facing a serious medical crisis. We are honored to be a part of their home-away-from-home.”
The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further SSFCU’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union’s market areas. Learn more at www.ssfcu.org or call 1-800-52-SSFCU.
