On the Blog: Assisting Credit Union People Affected by California Wildfires

From Christopher Morris - As you may know, wildfires raged across California and the Northwest the past few months and thankfully are now largely contained. However, the devastation looms large and many of the people affected were either credit union staff or members.

Anytime a large disaster happens, we reach out to state credit union associations to find out what the extent of the damage is to see if and how we can help. Why? The Foundation runs CUAid (cuaid.coop), which is the only program of its kind that enables credit union employees, volunteers, and members, as well as credit unions and credit union organizations across the U.S., to contribute directly to support other credit union people to provide disaster relief.
