CUAid donations tally at 175K says NCUF
MADISON, Wis. (11/14/12)--In the past week, the donations through CUAid to provide disaster relief to victims of Hurricane Sandy have more than doubled, said the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) Tuesday.

More than $175,000 has been raised for disaster relief by credit unions and credit union-related organizations through CUAid,  the credit union movement's Disaster Relief Fund, said NCUF.  The fund aids credit union staff, volunteers and members directly impacted by the hurricane which hit the East Coast Oct. 29 and 30.

A week ago, on Nov. 5, credit unions had already raised $82,000 as the extent of the damage, especially in New Jersey and New York, were made known. Most credit unions in the areas impacted were closed due to flooding and power outages, many for several days. More than 800 credit unions were affected.

"NCUF continues to receive online donations and checks from credit unions across the country, which is truly inspiring," said NCUF Director of Communications Christopher Morris.

Morris was interviewed late last week with CUbroadcast. In it he talks about CUAid and the range of support received.  Use the link to access the video.
