Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson thanked credit unions for their work on behalf of communities across the state, particularly with so many impacted by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Hutchinson has served as governor since 2015.
“In the midst of difficult times, Arkansans always find a way to help their neighbors in need. It’s people helping people, which just so happens to be the motto of Arkansas credit unions,” he said. “As you know, the need for many at the moment is financial and our credit unions are assisting Arkansas with that very need in communities across the state.”
Hutchinson notes that the support isn’t merely financial, that credit unions across Arkansas have hosted community food drives, supported first responders and worked to encourage and support impacted members.
“As we begin to rebuild our economy, credit unions will play a vital role,” he added.
