ALBANY, N.Y. (2/8/13)--The credit union community has raised enough money to provide 331 Hurricane Sandy victims and two credit unions disaster relief grants to help fund their recovery.

Funds were raised and distributed through the National Credit Union Foundation CUAid program and the New York Credit Union Foundation (NYCUF) statewide Disaster Relief Fund.

"The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy was significant, but so was the outpouring of support we saw from the credit union community in its aftermath," said William J. Mellin, president/CEO of the Credit Union Association of New York. "Thanks to our national and statewide disaster relief funds, we have been able to step in and help hundreds of families with their recovery."

Through the CUAid program, NCUF awarded more than $260,000 in grants to credit union employees, volunteers and members in New York and New Jersey. A total of 94 New York applicants received CUAid grants.

NYCUF's statewide Disaster Relief Fund raised and awarded $149,158 to 237 New York credit union employees, volunteers and members from 22 credit unions, and to two credit unions--Oceanside Christopher FCU in Oceanside, and Entertainment Industries FCU, New York City.
