Important Messages for Credit Union Members

Donate to Help Credit Union Members in Texas, Florida & Puerto Rico

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Recent major hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria have left paths of destruction and devastation in our country and beyond. Our hearts go out to all of the victims, including our fellow credit union members and staff, who have lost homes, businesses and more. As an organization who embodies the slogan, "People helping People," Down East Credit Union has already made a financial contribution to assist other credit union members and staff affected by these hurricanes.

Some of our staff and members have asked how they can help. DECU would like to share information on the National Credit Union Foundation Disaster Relief Fund where 100% of your contribution will go directly toward credit union disaster relief.

CU Aid (* is the national online giving center for credit unions. All contributions are directed to the National Credit Union Foundation Disaster Relief Fund. The donations made to the Foundation's Disaster Relief Fund will be disbursed through the credit union leagues or state foundations for use at the local level. In their first two weeks, CU Aid recorded over $1 million in contributions to help people put their lives back together after Tropical Storm Harvey. They are just beginning to accept donations for victims of Irma and Maria.

Your generosity will enable the credit unions to re-open their doors and provide critical financial services and resources to their members and communities they serve to help them rebuild their lives and provide for their families.

The donations will be used to ensure that the credit unions are able to function and will also provide humanitarian aid to the credit union and league staff in the affected communities, in short, where it will be needed most.

Please know that your contribution will make a difference in the lives of those affected by these tragic events.

Thank you for your support at a time when it is needed most.
