More than 550000 donated to TCUF disaster fund
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (10/28/08)--The Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) continues to be involved with Hurricane Ike relief efforts and has raised more than $550,000 for its disaster relief fund. More than 940 grants totaling $469,000 have been provided to credit union employees who work for credit unions in the affected areas (LoneStar Leaguer Oct. 27). Credit union employees in Southeast Texas who were impacted by the hurricane are eligible to apply for the league’s “Adopt a Family” program. Eligible employees must have at least one child and have suffered significant loss from the hurricane. Applicants must complete an online submission form (use the link). Six families have submitted profiles to date. TCUL also is offering debriefing sessions to help employees overcome grief and prevent emotional “stress fractures.” The league also will host a celebrity golf tournament next month with Southwest Corporate FCU in Plano, Texas, and the Harmon Killebrew Foundation. Proceeds will go to the disaster relief fund.
