FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (7/9/13)--The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, the charitable arm of the Cornerstone Credit Union League, has four emergency grants to employees of Del Rio, Texas-based Border FCU, who were affected by flooding in Eagle Pass, Texas in June.
Disaster relief is a critical function of the foundation. In addition to assisting credit union staff impacted by the flooding, the foundation also provided emergency grants to credit union staff impacted by the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma.
The foundation was able to respond to the needs of credit union staff impacted by natural disasters because of the support of the credit union community, said Executive Director Courtney Moran. For example, after the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma on May 20, more than $161,000 in donations was received, allowing the foundation to provide immediate assistance to credit union employees in need.
