CUAid Update: Over $25k Raised for CU People Affected by Colorado Wildfires — Jul 10, 2012
Since activating its online disaster relief system CUAid.coop on June 29, the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) has already raised over $25,000 from the credit union community to assist credit union people affected by the wildfires in Colorado.
“It’s reported that the fire is 100% contained now, which is great news,” said Scott Earl, President/CEO of the Mountain West Credit Union Association. “However, there were more than 340 homes destroyed. Many families have been widely affected and will continue to need assistance and support for some time as they piece their community back together. The largest need right now for most organizations helping the evacuees and victims is financial.”
