American Heritage Credit Union Makes Donation to Salus University’s Looking Out for Kids
When American Heritage Credit Union president and CEO Bruce Foulke met with Salus president Michael Mittelman, OD ’80, MPH, MBA, FAAO, FACHE, and was informed about the University’s Looking Out for Kids (LOFK) program, he took special note.
“When I heard what Salus does for kids, I said to myself, ‘Wow, we have to be part of that.’ After that it was a no-brainer,” Foulke said.
In the continued spirit of the shared mission of helping children it has with Salus — and as part of its corporate mission of giving back to the community — American Heritage Credit Union recently made a $10,000 donation to LOFK.
“For American Heritage, it’s a part of our corporate social responsibility to be able to support other organizations that are doing good in the community,” said Dorian Smith, senior vice president/business development for the credit union. “We’re more than happy to support the efforts of Salus University and helping kids in the city of Philadelphia and throughout the region.”
Along with Dr. Mittelman, accepting the check for Salus was Jacqueline Patterson, MPA, vice president of Institutional Advancement and Community Relations; and Brandy Scombordi, OD ’98, Resident ’99, pediatric optometrist at The Eye Institute and coordinator of the School Vision Programs, as well as the primary provider on the university’s Big Red Bus, which travels to communities to offer on-site eye screenings for children.
