Hundreds benefit from national,
statewide disaster relief
Thanks to the generosity of the credit union community, hundreds of Hurricane Sandy victims have received disaster relief grants to help fund their recovery. Funds were raised and distributed through the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) CUAid program and the New York Credit Union Foundation (NYCUF) statewide Disaster Relief Fund.
Through the CUAid program, NCUF awarded more than $260,000 in grants to credit union employees, volunteers and members in New York and New Jersey. A total of 94 New York applicants received CUAid grants.
Through the statewide Disaster Relief Fund, NYCUF has awarded nearly $115,000 to 229 New York credit union employees, volunteers and members. Additional applications received before the 2012 deadline are being reviewed as pending donations are processed.
"The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy was significant, but so was the outpouring of support we saw from the credit union community in its aftermath," said William J. Mellin, president/CEO of the Credit Union Association of New York. "Thanks to our national and statewide disaster relief funds, we have been able to step in and help hundreds of families begin to recover."
Thank you for your support!
