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 made the $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross for emergency relief efforts to assist the evacuees, many who are sheltering at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds. Allegacy also delivered a truckload of bottled water to the Second Harvest Food bank for distribution to first responders and those displaced.

“We are proud to help our community partners deliver much-needed aid to the residents and businesses displaced by the Weaver Plant fire, many of whom are part of our Allegacy family,” said Cathy Pace, Allegacy President and CEO. “It is during uncertain and scary times as these that we appreciate the way our community of Winston-Salem comes together to support one another. We encourage organizations and individuals to look for ways to lend a hand by making financial or in-kind donations and volunteering.”
