Ukrainian CU gifts $150K to educational center
PHILADELPHIA (8/18/14)--Ukrainian Selfreliance FCU (USFCU) announced this week it will donate $150,000 spread over the next three years to the Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center (UECC) in Jenkintown, Pa.

The center, which has hosted multiple Ukrainian-American organizations since 1980, will use the money to help make improvements to its facilities.

USFCU, with $260 million in assets, serves 9,000 members and is the fifth-largest credit union in Philadelphia.

"This gift will allow us to make much-needed building renovations that will enable us to better serve the needs of the community," said Sophia Koropeckyj, UECC president.

More than 30 organizations operate from the educational center, including the Ukrainian Federation of America, Prometheus Ukrainian Male Chorus and youth groups such as the Ukrainian Heritage School and the Ukrainian Youth Association.

"The UECC is an invaluable asset to the community and is utilized by many of our members," said Mary Kolodij, USFCU board chair.
