WSECU has opened an account to accept donations from members, employees and community members to support victims of flooding in Texas following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.
The funds will be directed to the United Way of Greater Houston’s flood relief fund. WSECU selected the charity based on its rating by independent evaluator Charity Navigator and because the oversight and distribution of money will be made by individuals local to the communities most impacted.
Contributing is easy and can be done at any WSECU branch or by calling the credit union’s contact center at 800-562-0999.
“The WSECU community has always been there to give when there has been a natural disaster in other regions,” said Ann Flannigan, WSECU’s Vice President of Public Relations. “We’ve all seen the footage of the structural damage and know that the rebuilding phase will be very difficult on our neighbors in Texas. The donations by our members and staff will be our way of letting them know that we in the northwest care.”
WSECU will accept contributions until September 15.
Founded by a handful of state employees in 1957, WSECU has grown to 21 branches, 615 employees and more than $2.6 billion in assets. Membership is open to all residents of the state of Washington.
