CU helps members who lost jobs last week
LIBERTY, S.C. (12/22/11)--Pickens (S.C.) FCU is helping workers who lost their jobs last week at the nearby Liberty Denim plant by offering them loans up to $1,200.

The loans are earmarked to cover living and holiday expenses, the credit union said (IndependentMail.com Dec. 20).

When the plant was shuttered Friday, it left 185 employees without jobs days before the holidays. Employees were given a two-day notice before the plant closed.

The $17 million asset credit union participated in a local job fair Tuesday to provide free counseling about money and to help laid-off workers learn about loan-refinancing options.
