Donations will help those impacted by massive fires in California and Oregon
(CARSON CITY, Nev.) – To assist with disaster relief during this devastating fire season, Greater Nevada Credit Union (GNCU) has donated $30,000 to three different credit unions coordinating relief efforts in California and Oregon. Rogue Credit Union Foundation in Medford, Ore.; Redwood Credit Union Community Fund in Santa Rosa, Calif.; and Sierra Central Credit Union in Yuba City, Calif. will each receive $10,000 to assist with ongoing relief efforts.
“With so many new fires burning through forests and foothills across California and Oregon, credit unions are stepping up to help their communities in their greatest time of need”, said Greater Nevada Credit Union CEO, Wally Murray. “We want to support our neighboring credit unions as they serve their members and help their communities rebuild.”
Institutions receiving these donations understand the critical role that member-owned financial institutions play in rebuilding communities and providing vital services to disaster victims. Many credit unions are coordinating donations for relief and launching special financial programs such as low-interest loans and grants aimed to help those displaced or impacted by the fires.
Greater Nevada Credit Union encourages community members, other businesses, and financial institutions to consider donating to wildfire relief efforts.
