Service CU donates 25000 for fuel assistance
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (7/25/08)--The ongoing high fuel prices have prompted Service CU to donate $25,000 to help poor New Hampshire families heat their homes this winter. The Portsmouth, N.H.-based credit union made the donation Wednesday to the New Hampshire Fuel Assistance Community Action Agencies. Its donation will be spread across the six state agencies and divided into amounts based on the credit union's membership distribution in the area.

Service CU presented the check to Gov. John Lynch at the statehouse. "It is typical of Service CU to step up. It is a model for other companies to emulate," said the governor. "Service CU is part of the solution. We can all step up and come together to help." The donation was distributed to Rockingham Community Action Inc., $8,500; Southwestern Community Services (Sullivan and Cheshire), $5,500; Southern New Hampshire Services Inc. (Hillsborough), $3,750; Strafford County Community Action, $3,500; Tri-County Community Action (Carroll, Coos and Grafton), $2,250; and Community Action Program Belknap-Merrimack Counties Inc., $1,500. The credit union also is launching its Warm Hearted Savings Program, a special low-cost financing program for fuel pre-buys or payment plans, energy efficient home improvement loans, and scooter and fuel-efficient vehicles loans.
