2020 has been HARD. Our credit union family has not only been navigating a pandemic, but many have found themselves faced with natural disasters that uproot their families, their finances and overall well-being. It has been a challenging season with hurricanes impacting the Gulf Coast and wildfires ravaging California, Oregon, Colorado and more.
The Foundation wants to thank everyone who has donated to CUAid this year in the aftermath of these natural disasters. Every dollar makes a difference, and for someone going through something tragic, your donations make a world of difference. When you give to CUAid, you are giving to real people, just like you, who work for a credit union. You help them see that “people helping people” is more than just a saying. Take this credit union employee for example who received a grant after their house was damaged from wildfires:
“Wow, thank you so much for the good news. I am so very appreciative of not only the amazing aid, but simply that the credit union industry cares so much. I have been in credit unions for over 25 years now and the people never cease to amaze me. Please pass on a BIG thank you to all involved with the program and the decision to grant me such a wonderful gift.”
