San Antonio CU places ATMs for hurricane evacuees
SAN ANTONIO (9/15/08)--San Antonio FCU (SACU) has placed two ATMs at the Port of San Antonio to provide Hurricane Ike evacuees access to their funds. Port San Antonio is a staging area for evacuees coming into San Antonio. As a community service, the $2.6 billion asset credit union won't assess an SACU surcharge on transactions from the machine. "We are pleased that we have the capability to provide this service on short notice to help our friends who have been temporarily displaced due to Hurricane Ike," SACU Chief Financial Officer Mark Dwyer said. "The credit union invested in mobile ATM units so it could provide an additional level of service to its members and the community at large," Dwyer said, adding the ATMs "can be deployed to make the evacuees' lives a little bit more manageable." The credit union's portable ATM unit can move to a service location easily and its "ATM on wheels" can be set up for short-term use at locations such as weekend festivals and community events.
