Dakota CUs Fill the Boat for flood victims
BISMARCK, N.D. (8/25/11)--Dakota credit unions and members helped to make the “Fill the Boat” campaign--a credit union drive that began in June to collect donations and cash for flood victims in North Dakota and South Dakota--successful, said the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD). Roughly 44 credit union locations throughout the two states collected more than $2,000 worth of donated supplies and nearly $8,000 in cash donations through the Young Credit Union Professionals (YCUP) organization when the campaign concluded last week. The YCUP network consists of credit union employees--between the ages of 18 and 40--who are dedicated to increasing social, professional and service-related opportunities for young credit union professionals in North and South Dakota. Two YCUP members, CUAD’s Amy Jo Johnson and Steve Rahrich, took a 14-foot U-Haul vehicle on a road trip through the North Dakota towns of Edgeley, Jamestown, Devils Lake and Minot to pick up the items from some of the participating credit unions. Donated items in Fargo and Grand Forks were collected by Roxanne Mullenberg, a Postal Family FCU employee and YCUP member. Half of the items were delivered to Our Lady of Grace Food Pantry in Minot; the other half went to Bismarck’s local food banks. In South Dakota, Amy Kleinschmit, a YCUP member and CUAD director of compliance, collected donated items from some credit unions in the Sioux Falls area. The items were donated to the Sioux Falls Red Cross office for Missouri flood victims. Several other participating South Dakota credit unions delivered their collected items directly to the Red Cross. The $8,000 in donated cash will be divided between two charities. Half will go to the Minot Recovery Fund, and half to CUAid.
