Dakota flood victims receive 36K from CUAid
BISMARCK, N.D. (9/16/11)--The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD) brought good news to some flood victims in Minot, N.D., this week when staff hand delivered more than $36,000 in aid checks to seven Minot-area credit unions.

The checks will be distributed to individual credit union employees and members who were severely affected by the flood waters this summer. The checks were made possible by donations to the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) online disaster relief system, CUAid.coop, which solicited funds from credit union people nationwide. The donations will help credit union employees and members who were displaced or experienced massive damage to their personal property by the high waters. NCUF coordinated with the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas to distribute money efficiently to credit union employees and members in the affected areas. “This is what credit unions are all about,” said Robbie Thompson, CUAD president/CEO. "Through CUAid and the efforts of credit unions and others all around the country, we were able to give a helping hand to credit union employees and volunteers in the Minot area who have had their lives turned upside down by the devastating flood.
