The Golden 1 CU opens account for fire victims
SCRAMENTO, Calif. (10/29/10)--The Golden 1 CU in Sacramento, Calif., announced it has opened an account to allow members of the community to donate much-needed funds to River City Food Bank, following a devastating fire that damaged both the organization’s building and its stockpile of food. “We are grateful the River City Food Bank is there year-round for the community, providing food for those in need,” said Donna Bland, interim president/CEO of the credit union. “We have made it a priority to help this organization get back on its feet as quickly as possible and part of that is providing the community with an easy way to make monetary contributions.” Eileen Thomas, executive director of the River City Food Bank, said: “We thank Golden 1 and its employees for their support. Efforts such as these will help us get back on our feet much quicker.” Establishing an account for relief efforts is the most recent action Golden 1 has made to help the River City Food Bank recover from the fire that occurred Oct. 22. Other measures include the donation of $5,000 cash and an employee canned-food drive spanning Sacramento, which has already resulted in a great response. “We have had an outpouring from employees inquiring how they can help,” Bland said. “It is always inspiring to see the sense of civic duty present in our staff.” Donations to the River City Food Bank Fire Fund account will be accepted at all Golden 1 branches. The Golden 1 has $7 billion in assets.
