Relief Fund Check presented to Georgetown City Fire Department
N. CHARLESTON, SC (November 21, 2013) — On Tuesday, South Carolina Federal Credit Union employees presented a check in the amount of $2,800 to the Georgetown City Fire Department. The donation was in response to the fire that devastated buildings along Front Street in historic Georgetown on September 25, 2013.
Accounts were established at South Carolina Federal Credit Union locations to allow the community to contribute, while a bake sale was held in conjunction at the Georgetown branch. Credit union employees were encouraged to participate through internal drives, in addition to a corporate donation.
The Georgetown City Fire Department will put the funds collected to use in purchasing and updating equipment for fighting fires within the community.
