The National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) has activated the online disaster relief system CUAid.coop to raise money for credit union people in Texas affected by Tropical Storm Harvey and those in and near Florida who were in Hurricane Irma’s path. Credit union supporters in every state can make donations at cuaid.coop.
“With the devastating flooding caused by Harvey, our credit union brothers and sisters need help,” said Foundation Executive Director Gigi Hyland. “Everyone who supports CUAid is helping affected credit union people directly with critical needs, longer-term recovery needs, operational needs, and assisting credit union members.”
“According to the latest reports, up to 15,000 credit union employees are in Hurricane Irma’s path. Having two large-scale disaster relief campaigns open simultaneously is unprecedented, therefore please know that any and all donations to CUAid will make a profound difference to your credit union colleagues in need,” said Foundation Director Christopher Morris.
As donations are posted through CUAid.coop, the National Credit Union Foundation will coordinate with the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation in the disaster area to distribute money efficiently to affected credit union employees and volunteers. 100% of the donations through CUAid goes to credit union disaster relief.Donate Now Learn More
