CU System
Missouri CUs landscape HFOT home
COLUMBIA, Mo. (6/24/10)--More than 40 credit union employees rolled sod, and planted shrubs, trees and flowers to make Staff Sgt. (SSG) Robert Canine’s house look more like a home as part of the Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) project in Missouri.

Missouri credit union representatives’ families and friends met last Saturday to landscape Canine’s yard in Columbia, Mo., before the key ceremony occurs Saturday (The Missouri difference June 23). Credit union representatives from Anheuser-Busch Employees’ CU, St. Louis; Employment Security CU, Jefferson City; River Region CU, Jefferson City; Rolla (Mo.) FCU; United CU, Mexico; and the Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) took part in the event. “My wife likes to garden and her brother is serving in Afghanistan, so this hits close to home,” Bill Mustain, Employment Security president, told the MCUA. “We’re happy to support this cause.” “The soldiers give a lot for us and our freedom, so this landscaping day seems like nothing,” said Susan Schmitz, Anheuser-Busch Employees’ CU accounting manager. “This shows what credit unions can do when they pull together in the community.” The Canine family, lawmakers and media will be present when Missouri credit unions and HFOT hand over the keys to the first specially adapted HFOT home in Missouri on Saturday. Credit unions in several states have worked with HFOT, which builds specially adapted houses for severely wounded soldiers.
