AOD Donates Money to Local Military Hero
Retired Army Sergeant 1st Class Aaron Causey lost his legs to an improvised explosive device in a blast in Afghanistan on Sept. 7, 2011. A very determined Causey decided after the incident that he would walk again. And, three months to the day of the attack, he walked on new prosthetic legs. Today, the AOD Federal Credit Union donated $25,000 to the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Warrior Foundation to assist funding of the home for the Hero Community Campaign local American Hero. The $25,000 donation will assist in raising money to build Causey and his family, an Americans with Disabilities Act -accessible home in Pell City. The E-O-D Warrior Foundation is helping to raise funds for the Home for a Hero Community Campaign that has a fundraising goal of $350,000 to build a safe and accessible modified home to meet Causey’s extensive needs.
