CBSI Advisers Assemble and Deliver Care Packages for Veterans

Earlier this year, our CBSI advisers partnered with credit unions and financial services representatives for a community service effort in support of veterans at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston, Texas.

As part of their annual conference, over 500 attendees assembled and delivered 368 care packages to local veterans—and it was an impactful day for all participants.

“I’m proud to have served in the Marine Corps. A lot of these men and women that are in these hospitals, they gave to people, and not even realizing the impact that they would really mean to anybody in that situation,” said Eric Edwards, Managed Adviser for Point Breeze Credit Union. “For companies to be able to embrace them with open arms—to celebrate that—it really means a lot.”

“It’s amazing what happens when people come together to give and serve,” said Rob Comfort, President, CBSI. “There’s not a greater joy that we have, than when we take our focus off of ourselves and put it onto others, and I can’t think of any greater group of people to support than our veterans.”
Together we can make a difference. If you’d like to explore volunteer opportunities and make a difference in the lives of veterans in your community, reach out to your local VA through The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
