CUAid activated to assist credit union people affected by Hurricane Michael

MADISON, WI (October 11, 2018) — The National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) has opened CUAid to receive disaster relief funds to assist credit union people affected by Hurricane Michael; a Category 4 hurricane that has caused catastrophic effects across Florida and Georgia and is expected to reach the already hurricane-soaked Carolinas today.

Donations to CUAid are being used for any credit union employees and volunteers affected by this hurricane. Credit union supporters in every state can make donations through cuaid.coop.

“With Hurricane Michael arriving as the Florida’s strongest storm in over twenty-five years, we are opening CUAid to begin raising funds to assist credit union people in their recovery,” said Gigi Hyland, Executive Director. “We hope the credit union movement will once again show their support and cooperative spirit in assisting those who have been affected by this natural disaster.”

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.
