CUs loans help 670 members with Sandy recovery
WARMINSTER, Pa. (12/11/12)--Freedom FCU, with $574 million in assets, Warminster, Pa., has helped 650 members affected by Hurricane Sandy by issuing more than $650,000 in low interest rate loans.

Members could borrow up to $1,500 and were approved quickly so they could begin to recover from the storm, the credit union said.

"Words can't express enough my gratitude for this service at such a time like this," said Janice Jones, a Jefferson Hospital employee said. "Thank you again for all that you have done."
