WINSTON-SALEM, NC (February 3, 2022) — Allegacy Federal Credit Union announced today a $10,000 donation to help with the recovery and relief efforts in the wake of the Weaver Fertilizer Plant fire that ignited on Monday, resulting in the evacuation of an estimated 6,000 people and closed businesses in a one-mile radius of the fire.

Allegacy also delivered a truckload of bottled water to the Second Harvest Food bank for distribution to first responders and those displaced.
