ALEXANDRIA, Va (11/13/12)--New Jersey Credit Union League (NJCUL) President/CEO Paul Gentile last week thanked the National Credit Union Administration for its "extraordinary" hurricane relief efforts.

"We are so grateful to the agency. NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz very quickly reached out to us to extend help, and she and NCUA delivered," Gentile added.

National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Adviser Buddy Gill late last week drove a 20-foot moving truck filled with clothing, blankets, pillows, and canned goods from NCUA offices in Alexandria, Va. to the NJCUL's office in Hightstown, N.J. The goods were donated by NCUA staff throughout the week.

"I couldn't believe how packed NCUA's truck was with clothing, water and dry goods. They did an amazing job. It took the League staff over an hour to unload because there was so much," Gentile said. He also offered a special thanks to Gill for his role in delivering the goods.

Rutgers FCU also donated clothing and food to the league.

The NCUA and Rutgers FCU donations will be made available to credit union employees, volunteers, members, and communities affected by Hurricane Sandy. New Jersey credit unions that wish to help with distribution of these goods can contact NJCUL.
