People helping people: The silver lining of tropical storm Harvey
Communities provide an important support structure. Throughout the devastation that Tropical Storm Harvey has caused in Southeast Texas and Louisiana, members of the community have come together to help strangers get to shelter, access food and water and, in many cases, save their lives. This people helping people spirit is alive and well within the credit union community, and we have a tremendous opportunity to support other credit union people in Texas and Louisiana impacted by the tropical storm.
CUAid is an online disaster relief system organized by the National Credit Union Foundation. Money raised is for credit union employees, volunteers and members affected by the powerful tropical storm. Credit union supporters in every state can learn more and make donations at www.cuaid.coop.
CO-OP Financial Services is donating $10,000 to CUAid. The donation augments the nationwide CO-OP Shared Branch and CO-OP ATM networks used extensively in credit union business continuity and recovery during times of disaster.continue reading »
