Achieva Credit Union helps victims of Hurricane Ian rebuild & announces “Dollar for Dollar Match” program
Supporting relief supplies & monetary donations, the credit union gets hands on in hurricane relief
DUNEDIN, FLA. (October 10, 2022) — Achieva Credit Union, a not-for-profit financial institution, has started a program to help survivors of the storm. Hurricane Ian caused complete destruction claiming hundreds of homes and businesses around the city of Fort Myers. To help these communities, the Achieva Foundation started a dollar-for-dollar match to double the impact of those who give. Every dollar donated through this program will provide twice the impact on victims of the storm, meaning twice the amount of water, gasoline, generators and other essential supplies to those who need it most.
Achieva Credit Union has multiple branches with more than 70 employees in Charlotte and Lee Counties. These people, their homes, and their families have been devastated by this natural disaster. The day following the storm the CEO, dozens of employees and directors of branches located around Pinellas County and Tampa began the first of multiple trips to help fellow employees, coworkers, and the general public in need.
“Hurricane Ian had a major impact on our community and many of our neighbors find themselves in need,” says Gary Regoli, President and CEO of Achieva Credit Union. “We’re calling on the public to join us as we come together and help increase our impact.”
Achieva Credit Union is offering a “Skip-a-Pay” option and providing an Assistance Relief Loan for those needing additional support.
“The culture that is created in our organization is amazing. Community is what we do here,” said Tasha Cohen-Glynn, Marketing and Public Relations Manager at Achieva Credit Union. She continued, “This is the difference between banks and Credit Unions. To do good is at the root of who we are.”
