Arizona State CU grants 25000 to worker training program
TUCSON, Ariz. (12/21/07)--Arizona State CU, Phoenix, announced that it is giving a $25,000 grant to benefit Tucson’s Community Housing Corp. The grant will help clean landfills, provide computer-skill training to the homeless, and provide used computer equipment to low-income neighborhoods. Workers will remove electronic waste from landfills, and then repair computers and return them to use. As they develop skills and gain certification, they will be employed part-time while the program helps them find full-time jobs. The computer equipment they repair will be provided to low-income neighborhoods at little or no cost. “This is a long-term solution that will add a significant number of marginalized individuals to the work force and provide them the opportunity to earn their way to a better life,” said Arizona State CU President/CEO David E. Doss. Pima Computer Recycling, a subsidiary of the housing corporation, approached the credit union with the worker training program. Pima’s goal is to help the marginalized--most workers will be referred from local homeless shelters. Through its membership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, Arizona State CU obtained the $2,500 Access to Housing and Economic Assistance for Development grant. The credit union then distributed the funds to Pima for the program. Arizona State CU has $1.1 billion in assets.
