$10,000 Donated by CO-OP Financial Services to Hurricane Florence Relief
Donation Augments CO-OP Shared Branch, ATM Networks to Serve Displaced Members
CO-OP Financial Services is donating $10,000 to CUAid, organized to help credit unions and their members in the Carolinas as they work to recover from Hurricane Florence.
“Hurricane Florence reminds us that natural disasters can come upon us with amazing speed,” said Todd Clark, President/CEO for CO-OP. “We have been proactively contacting clients in the impacted areas to assess needs and determine where we can help. The donated funds on behalf of our client credit unions is one expression of that outreach, in addition to our vast network of branches and ATMs, ensuring access to accounts for those displaced by the flooding.”
CUAid is an online disaster relief system organized by the National Credit Union Foundation. Money raised is for credit union employees, volunteers and members affected by the powerful storm.
To donate, CUAid can be found at www.cuaid.coop.
