Iowa disaster relief donations top 460000
DES MOINES, Iowa (8/14/08)--More than $460,000 has been raised for the Iowa Credit Union Foundation’s disaster relief grant program. Nearly 900 credit union members have received grants of $500 each to help with immediate needs, after their homes were damaged by spring floods. The foundation has received funds from 47 members of the Iowa Credit Union League. Also, 18 credit unions, credit union foundations and companies nationwide have contributed to relief efforts. Several Iowa credit unions added to their original contributions, including: Linn Area CU, Cedar Rapids ($50,000); Collins Community CU, Cedar Rapids ($58,000); Affinity CU, Des Moines ($2,000); Chemical CU, Clinton ($1,000); Premier CU, Des Moines ($3,385); and River Valley CU, Ames ($1,500). Also, University of Iowa Community CU donated $15,000 to help its members affected by flooding. Out-of-state contributions were received from Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Ohio and Florida. “The road to recovery is going to be a lengthy process for many members, and Iowa credit unions and the foundation will continue to provide support along the way,” said Marybeth Foster, foundation executive director.
