CU raises 1.7M for slain officers families
PITTSBURGH (7/27/09)--The Greater Pittsburgh Police FCU delivered more than $1.7 million in donations from across the nation to a trust fund set up for the families of three Pittsburgh police officers killed in an April 4 ambush while responding to domestic dispute. All the funds will go to the families of Officers Eric Kelly, Stephen Mayhle and Paul Sciullo II. Kelly and Mayhle were members of the $45 million asset credit union (Life is a Highway July 22). Nearly $10,000 of the funds came from credit unions in the Pittsburgh area. Sandy Lazzara, CEO, told the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association the credit union will continue collecting funds at several charitable events that haven't been held yet. The credit union's efforts made news when mail carriers kept delivering brick-sized packages of letters with statements of support and contributions (News Now April 8 and April 14). S C M H Employees FCU helped the Greater Pittsburgh Police FCU post millions of checks, and riverset CU provided an online T-shirt fund for the efforts. All three credit unions are based in Pittsburgh.
