Citadel FCU offers reward against arson spree
HARRISBURG, Pa. (1/27/09)--A Thorndale, Pa., credit union is contributing to a reward fund set up for the town of Coatesville, which has experienced 15 fires caused by arson since the year began. Citadel FCU, Thorndale contributed $1,000 to the Coatesville Reward Fund, as a reward to anyone offering information that leads to the arrest of those responsible. The credit union has also set up an account for additional contributions. The latest fire, last weekend , destroyed 15 row homes in Coatesville, Pa., leaving dozens of families homeless and City Council declaring a state of emergency, according to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (Life is a Highway Jan. 26). "Many members of our credit union have been affected by both the physical destruction of these meaningless fires, as well as the continuing fear that they have caused," said Jeff March, president/CEO of the $1.086 billion asset credit union. "Firefighters are exhausted, neighborhoods are constantly on watch, and there is a mounting frustration that is hitting us all," he told PCUA. He encouraged local businesses and citizens to "lend a hand during this time of need."
