CU Hawaii FCU gives $13,975 to The Salvation Army
HILO, HI (December 23, 2020) — CU Hawaii FCU, a not-for-profit financial institution has donated $13,975 to The Salvation Army. As COVID-19 changed the retail landscape, CU Hawaii decided to forgo its holiday shopping campaigns. The credit union shifted its focus to provide back to the community through a “Give Thanks” campaign —for every booked personal loan, up to $100 is donated.
On Tuesday morning, James Takamine, President & CEO, presented the sizable check to Lt. Jacob Bratton of The Salvation Army at the Hilo Main Branch. “This is an optimistic change from our standard Black Friday promotions. We wanted to focus this year on supporting our community,” says Takamine.
