RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – CO-OP Financial Services is donating $10,000 to CUAid, organized to help credit unions and their members in the areas impacted by Hurricane Michael. The donation by CO-OP comes on the heels of $10,000 donated last month to address emergency relief in the wake of Hurricane Florence.
“Hurricane Michael is the most powerful storm on record to hit the Florida Panhandle, so we are again contributing to CUAid for the second month in a row to support the people of the southeast,” said Todd Clark, President/CEO for CO-OP. “As we always do in time of emergency, we have been contacting clients in the impacted areas to assess needs and determine where we can help. This is in addition making sure members know how to access accounts through the CO-OP Shared Branch and CO-OP ATM networks should they be displaced by the storm.”
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.
