Hiway Credit Union donates over $10,000 to Maui relief efforts
ST. PAUL, MN (September 28, 2023) — Hiway Credit announced today that it raised over $5,000 through member, community partner and employee donations to help support those impacted by the Maui wildfires. In addition to the money raised, the Hiway Foundation contributed $5,000 bringing the total donation to over $10,000.
“People helping people is the credit union model and the tremendous compassion our members and associates have shown by making these donations is a wonderful example of delivering on that philosophy,” said Christine Cordell, Hiway Credit Union’s Senior Vice President of Organizational Effectiveness.
The donation was sent through the National Credit Union Foundation Disaster Relief Fund, CUAid. The financial donations made to CUAid provide direct and immediate support to local credit unions. As the charitable arm of the credit union movement, contributions aid in assisting credit union communities, volunteers, and employees in times of need.
This is not the first time Hiway Credit Union and its members have raised funds for those in need. In 2022, the credit union donated $10,000 to World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) in support of emergency humanitarian assistance in Ukraine and in the neighboring European countries welcoming the millions of Ukrainian refugees.
