Global CU Donates $1000 for Hurricane Sandy Relief

SPOKANE, Wash. – Global Credit Union has donated $1000 to CUAid to assist with disaster relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

“Credit unions are founded on the philosophy of people helping people,” says Jack Fallis, Global Credit Union President/CEO “that doesn’t stop at financial services. We want to do what we can to help those impacted by the hurricane.”

“CUAid allows us to provide assistance directly to those affected by a natural disaster whether they are across the country or in our own backyard” he added. The credit union has included a link to CUAid on its website so that members and employees may make personal contributions as well.

CUAid, a program by the National Credit Union Foundation, is the only one of its kind that enables credit union employees, volunteers and members, as well as credit unions and credit union organizations across the U.S., to contribute directly to support other credit union people.  One hundred percent of the donations to CUAid are used directly for disaster relief.

Donations for Hurricane Sandy relief through CUAid already exceed $82,000.  The National Credit Union Foundation coordinates with credit union leagues in the disaster area to distribute money efficiently to affected credit union employees and members.
