Ireland CUs donate 181092 to flood victims
DUBLIN (12/7/09)--Irish credit unions donated $181,092 to help people affected by recent flooding in Ireland. More than 90 credit unions have donated money to a central fund established last week--the first time the credit union movement has organization such a fund. Credit unions also have created their own funds so members can donate (The Irish Examiner Dec. 4). The flooding in Ireland has occurred along the Shannon River, which is expected to take at least three weeks to return to normal levels. At least 70 families in the area were forced to leave their homes, the newspaper said (Nov. 26). Credit unions are seeing how the weather conditions experienced in the past week will have “real and lasting damage on the families and the communities affected by flood damage,” said Irish League of Credit Unions President Mark Bailey. St. Vincent de Paul and the Irish Red Cross were presented Friday with a check from the credit unions to help flood victims.
