The heartbreaking stories coming out of Haiti inspired Member Service Support to organize the collection of donations for victims of the earthquake. In just over a week, Credit Union employees contributed a total of $1,221.06 to the Red Cross. Thank you, MSS!
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
The Credit Union also gave an additional $2,000 for Haiti - half to the Red Cross and half to the Indiana Credit Union League Foundation.
You can still donate by texting ‘Haiti’ to 90999. A $10 donation will be added to your phone bill. Visit www.redcross.org to donate online, or call 1-800-REDCROSS.
