Young CU pros in Dakotas launch flood relief program
BISMARCK, N.D. (7/15/11)--The Young Credit Union Professionals (YCUP) Network of the Dakotas has launched a “Fill-the-Boat” campaign to help families deal with the flood aftermath in North Dakota and South Dakota, which impacted thousands of credit union members. The campaign is accepting basic household supplies through July 29 at 34 credit unions in the two states where donors can drop off items such as garbage bags, mops, brooms, rubber gloves and bleach. “The flooding across the Dakotas has been devastating,” said Roxanne Mullenberg, YCUP member and employee of Postal Family FCU in Fargo, N.D. “Many families have been affected by a combinations of home loss, severe damage to their residence, or forced evacuation from their homes. Having family and friends directly impacted in Minot, N.D., I just felt that we had to do something to help.” “Credit unions were founded on the basis of the 'people helping people’ philosophy and that’s not just with their finances,” said Tanya San Miguel, vice president of operations at Sioux Empire FCU in Sioux Falls, S.D. “The YCUP network was ready to step in and get the ball rolling.” A list of recommended items and drop-off sites in North Dakota and South Dakota can be found at the “Fill-the-Boat” website. Use the link. Credit union supporters in every state can make donations though a secured online disaster relief system--CUAid.coop--website that accepts credit cards and wire transfers. Use the link.
