SunCorp staff has decided to forego the annual company picnic and instead use those funds as a donation to CUAid to support the relief efforts for wildfire victims in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and other western states.
There are still wildfires burning in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana that are affecting credit union members and staff. Two of the most destructive fires in Colorado history, Waldo Canyon and High Park, have recently been contained but at the cost of over 600 homes lost.
“Our staff has been very concerned about the credit union members and staff who have been affected by all of the wildfires,” said Lynn Baalman, Vice President of Human Resources. “Giving up our annual picnic is just the beginning of what we can do to help the victims.”
CUAid was developed by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) in 2006 in cooperation with state credit union foundations, state credit union leagues and associations, and the Credit Union National Association’s Disaster Preparedness Committee.
CUAid helps credit union employees, volunteers, and members, as well as credit unions and state credit union foundations nationwide to contribute directly to support others involved in the credit union movement. All of the donations through CUAid go to credit union disaster relief.
