Savannah, GA—The SBAC celebrated with the USO at its 73rd birthday celebration by donating to the local chapter. The SBAC collected $1,243.00 in monetary donations through its Lenders’ League networking group. Supplies were dropped off by members of the local community. SBAC President, Tony O’Reilly, was on hand to meet with volunteers of the USO and others as they celebrated over seven decades in existence as a national organization. “We are pleased that the USO allowed us to help in their mission. It’s an honor to meet with the individuals that selflessly give of their time and have such an impact in our local and national community.”
The USO provides support for our area’s troops and their families. There are nearly 200 volunteers supporting the USO operations at the Savannah Airport and Hunter Army Air Field. “It’s our honor to help the USO. We couldn’t think of a better group,” stated SBAC Vice President, Stephen George. The USO was chosen as the SBAC’s charity of choice for 2013, and the organization began collecting donations in October through its Lenders’ League networking group and from the local community.
