CU System
CEO among first to help economys victims
BLUE BELL, Pa. (7/15/09)--The “Get Help Now, Pennsylvania” volunteer initiative got underway July 7 to provide financial and legal help to Pennsylvanians affected by the economic downturn. Volunteers include lawyers and financial experts--including credit unions--at 13 locations statewide (Life is a Highway July 14). One of the first individuals looking for assistance at the Chester County Bar Association was helped by Helen Edwards, president/CEO of Norristown Bell CU, a $39.5 million asset, Blue Bell, Pa.-based credit union. Edwards offered suggestions on how the woman, who was laid off, could pay her bills and live on her monthly unemployment benefits. “She left here with a to-do list,” Edwards told a reporter for The Daily Local News. “She’s got a plan in mind. I think she’ll be OK.”
