Greenville, S.C. – The board of SC Telco, a non-profit financial cooperative headquartered out of Greenville, S.C., this week approved a donation of $20,000 to CUAid, a not-for-profit disaster relief program dedicated to helping credit unions, their employees and volunteers recover from major disasters.
The program, reactivated after recent storms Harvey and Irma, provides funds to credit union employees who have been affected by disaster. All donated funds go to the people who need it, and there are no administrative costs taken out of donations.
“We often talk in credit unions about the philosophy of “People Helping People”, and having the Heart of A Servant is one of our core values,” said SC Telco CEO Steve Harkins. “As everyone is aware, the recent devastation and destruction caused by storm damage from Harvey and Irma impacted millions. Many did not have insurance, and they have a long road ahead of them to put their lives back together even with help. The philosophy of “People Helping People” has never been more crucial than now.”
SC Telco also put forth a challenge to its own community—to continue giving beyond their own donation. The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation is currently matching every individual dollar donated dollar for dollar (up to $5,000). All donations will be sent directly to CUAid for disbursement. Individual donations can be made at https://squareup.com/store/carolinas-cu-foundation.
