California league honors outreach efforts
ONTARIO, Calif. (9/20/10)--The California Credit Union League honored a credit union leader and two credit unions with its 2010 Community Outreach Awards, formerly the league's Diversity Award. Award winners are:
* Urla Abrigo, CEO of the Los Angeles-based Episcopal Community FCU, who received the award in the individual category for her efforts to coordinate the Women's Wellness Day, which attracted more than 100 women, many of whom had no health insurance; * Travis CU, Vacaville, in the greater-than-$100 million asset category, for its collaboration with a community-leaders coalition to connect foster youth to opportunities, experiences and support to help them succeed as independent adults through its Money Matters program; and * Mission SF FCU, San Francisco, in the under-$100 million asset category, for its Prize-linked Accounts for Youth (PLAY) program, which provided free savings accounts and help in learning personal finance and building a savings habit.
The awards are presented by the league's Community Outreach Committee.
