RANCHO CUCAMONGA,Calif. – With the impact still being felt from last month’s devastating flooding in at least four Midwest states, CO-OP Financial Services has donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross towards disaster relief in the region.
“Overwhelmed levees, water quality concernsand more recent rainsare contributing to the ongoing need for aid,” said Todd Clark, president/CEO of CO-OP. “Our donation is tied to the foundation of the credit union movement – people helping people. We have also been contacting clients and CO-OP employees in the Midwest to assess needs and determine where we can additionally help. The safety of credit union employees, their members and our own employees is our paramount concern.”
CO-OP has more than 200 credit union clients in the impacted states of Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin, in addition to maintaining a major employee population center in Des Moines, Iowa, the CUSO said.
