Houston Area Credit Unions Match the Texas Credit Union Foundation Donation to Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts
HOUSTON, TX, November 13, 2012 – The Houston Chapter of Credit Unions Board of Directors approved a donation in the amount of $5,000 for Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts; matching the Texas Credit Union Foundation’s $5,000 donation announcement on October 31, 2012.
The Houston Chapter’s donation will be distributed in two parts; $2,500 will go directly to the New Jersey League, and $2,500 will go directly to the Credit Union Association of New York.
Clint Hartmann, President of the Houston Chapter and CEO of the Houston Texas Firefighters FCU explains “Houston credit unions want to help based upon our unique understanding of the devastation and the need that credit union employees and their families are experiencing in the New Jersey and New York areas. Storms like Hurricane Ike, that hit the Houston region in 2008, significantly disrupt the lives of hard working people and local businesses for several years after. Helping our brothers and sisters in the northeast is truly people helping people.”
The Houston Chapter of Credit Unions provides a collaborative environment for credit union
professionals and volunteers to receive education, leadership development, and grow credit union community influence. The Houston Chapter is comprised of over 100 credit unions in the Houston metropolitan area.
