Texas CUs restoring acre of land destroyed by Ike
GALVESTON, Texas (11/13/09)--The Texas Credit Union League’s (TCUL) 22nd Annual Credit Union Marketing & Business Development Conference allowed attendees and individuals within the Galveston area to participate in a networking/teambuilding community initiative called “Give Galveston a Hand.” Held earlier this month with sponsorships from the TCUL-affiliated Credit Union Resources Inc. (CUR), the Texas Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) and other organizations, the event surpassed the team’s goal of restoring one acre of flora and fauna to the still-recovering land ravaged by Hurricane Ike one year ago (LoneStar Leaguer Nov. 12). After weeding, seeding, watering, clearing and planting, the volunteers participated in a beach walk to clean up debris in the sand. “It was an absolutely rewarding experience that brought more than 75 people working together, laughing together and realizing the kind of positive results that are only made possible through exceptional teamwork,” noted Staci Zale, TCUF associate director. “Every person on the beach was working hard to plant grasses to stabilize the sand dunes and get one step closer to our goal of restoring one acre of land within the area,” she added. “At the end of the process, we managed to bring new life to over an acre-and-a-half of the grounds, and all because we worked cooperatively and efficiently.” TCUF provided a grant for a community sponsorship to assist in transportation for the event. Also, TCUF acted as a co-sponsor of a “Thank You Reception & Vendor Fair” after the initiative. Sponsors included:
* CUR; * CUNA Mutual Group; * Southwest Corporate FCU; * TCUF; * Texas Credit Union Marketing Council; * CU*Swag; * PTP NEW MEDIA; and * Promotions Made Easy.
