Southeastern CU Foundation donates 25K for Alabama relief
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (5/23/11)--The Southeastern Credit Union Foundation (SECUF) presented the American Red Cross of Alabama with a check for $25,000 Wednesday in Birmingham to assist the organization with relief efforts stemming from last month's tornadoes.

The foundation visited the Red Cross Operations Center to make the presentation. The Operations Center was a fitting place since the Red Cross uses the center to hand out assignments for workers, medical and mental health professionals, said the foundation. It’s also used to deploy vehicles and the distribution of its supplies. It takes a lot of money to run the Operations Center and large donations keep the operation running smoothly, said SECUF. “Our foundation has been working to help the needs of our credit union staff in Alabama,” said foundation Chairman Joe McGee. “However, the need is so great across the state that we felt we needed to also reach out and offer as much assistance as we could to the residents of Alabama. Donating to the Red Cross will ensure as many people as possible are helped by this contribution.” The SECUF also is continuing to assess the needs of credit union staff who have been affected by the storms. More than $30,000 in grants have been handed out to credit union staff, many of whom have lost everything. The foundation is still accepting donations to its Disaster Relief fund and encourages all credit unions to contribute to the National Credit Union Foundation’s CUAid fund, which the SECUF will match up to $100,000. Information on the Disaster Relief fund and CUAid can be found on the League of Southeastern Credit Unions website at www.lscu.coop or use the resource links.
