WEST LAFAYETTE – Purdue Federal Credit Union CEO Bob Falk recently presented a $50,000 check from Purdue Federal and The Brees Dream Foundation to the Purdue Athletes Life Success camp.
“PALS plays a vital role in our community,” said Falk. “We are proud to support this camp because it fulfills our mission to educate our area youth, helping them develop necessary skills to succeed in adulthood.”
Since 2007, Purdue Federal and The Brees Dream Foundation have jointly raised $275,000 for PALS, which provides sports, fitness, life and health instruction to area youth ages 8-14 whose parents or guardians meet Department of Health and Human Services income guidelines. The funds will support operation of PALS, ensuring area youth have a place where they learn valuable life skills during the summer.
Purdue Federal and The Brees Dream Foundation look forward to future support of PALS and the Lafayette-West Lafayette community.
