Voyage CU helps fellow co-op recover after fire
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (2/13/14)--A Sioux Falls, S.D., credit union helped an unlucky area business last week. But unlike typical credit union assistance to small enterprises, this had nothing to do with interest rates or principal reductions.

Several Voyage FCU employees lent a hand to Co-op Natural Foods last Saturday, weeks after a fire set by an arsonist gutted its store. Voyage workers and other community members brought supplies and helped clean and paint the co-op's new temporary location ( The Memo Feb. 12). Employees of the $71 million-asset credit union also contributed toward the cost of cleaning supplies.
 
Voyage FCU CEO Darla Erb, who helped repair drywall and prepared walls for primer, praised the co-op, of which Voyage Marketing Coordinator Molly Brown is a member.
 
"We have such an incredible community here in Sioux Falls and have really come together in supporting one of our local cooperatives," Erb told The Memo . "Natural Foods is making strides in our community, and it is good to see their comeback since the fire."
 
Co-op Natural Foods, which has more than 1,700 members, has been in Sioux Falls since 1973.
