CUAid activated to assist Credit Union people affected by Hurricane Florence’s anticipated damage

MADISON, WI (September 14, 2018) — The National Credit Union Foundation has activated CUAid in order to receive disaster relief funds to assist credit union people affected by Hurricane Florence; a Category 2 hurricane expected to cause catastrophic effects throughout the Carolinas, Virginia, and potentially Georgia.

Donations to CUAid are being used for any credit union employees and volunteers affected by this hurricane. Credit union supporters in every state can always make donations at cuaid.coop.
“Ahead of a dangerous hurricane that is likely to generate unprecedented storm surges along the coasts of North and South Carolina, Virginia, and potentially Georgia before moving inland and causing further disruption, the time to contribute to CUAid is now,” said Gigi Hyland, Executive Director. “We know this storm will continue to disrupt credit union operations across the south and we are prepared to respond.”
100% of the donations through CUAid goes to credit union disaster relief. The Foundation does not use disaster relief funds to pay for the CUAid.coop web platform or any of the Foundation costs to administer the national disaster relief program for credit unions.
