KERNERSVILLE, N.C. (10/8/15)--With flood-related damage in the Carolinas reaching people within the credit union movement, the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation (CCUF) is ready to receive disaster-relief contributions and connect support to individuals in need.
Together with the Carolinas Credit Union League, the CCUF will continue to gather reports from credit unions of staff and volunteers displaced or affected by floods that in some areas exceeded levels reached in many hundreds of years. Foundation outreach and assistance will go directly to individuals who work in or serve the credit union movement.
“The response by numerous organizations and individuals demonstrates their pride and heart for serving others in need,” CCUF BoardChair John Slack said. “We are thankful that most credit unions are physically and operationally sound, and we know they, too, are opening their arms to their communities. Our efforts are to provide aid to those who each and every day put the needs of members and citizens ahead of their own.”
Contributions payable to “Carolinas Credit Union Foundation” and noted for “Disaster Relief--Carolinas” may be mailed to Andrea Williams, Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, 1231 Shields Road, Suite 5, Kernersville, NC 27284. Instructions for contributing via automated clearing house (ACH) to First Carolina Corporate CU are available upon request from Brittani Champlin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-822-8859, ext. 161.
