AVCUs raffle to raise funds for CUAid Irene victims
MONTPELIER, Vt. (9/12/11)--The Association of Vermont Credit Unions (AVCU) has created a raffle to help victims of Tropical Storm Irene, which flooded much of Vermont, as recovery efforts continue for many of those affected throughout the state. Following AVCU’s participation in a CUAid teleconference last week, the association created a 50/50 raffle to help build contributions among employees, volunteers, and members. Half of the funds raised will go to one lucky winner, with the other half going to CUAid to help Irene’s credit union victims (Newslines Express Sept. 9). The raffle winner will be determined by an independent accounting firm. Only individuals are eligible to participate. Credit unions, other corporate entities, or individuals who want to see 100% of their charitable donation go to Irene’s victims, may support CUAid with a direct contribution through Vermont’s National Credit Union Foundation CUAid site. CUAid’s purpose is to help provide financial support for credit union employees and members when they’re still dealing with issues like meeting their insurance deductible or lacking adequate options for the recovery loan they may need. Typically, CUAid picks up where funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, insurance and other sources end.
