When tragedy strikes, the only response is to come together. To all those who were affected, we would like to extend our hands and open our hearts. We are here for you now and will continue to be while our still-vibrant community rebuilds.
We are committed to helping the community through this tough time and are always open to suggestions and outside perspective from our members. In this spirit, we are connecting with other credit unions in our area in an attempt to maximize our impact on and reach within the community.
Our friends at Sierra Central CU have partnered with its long-time spokesperson and former Sacramento King, Harold Pressley, and his Treat‘em Like a King (TLK) Foundation—which along with California Assemblyman James Gallagher and successful business leaders throughout the affected areas—is trying to get much-needed dollars and resources to families and individuals directly affected by the fire. Sierra Central donated $20,000 to the SCCU/TLK Foundation Camp Fire Relief Fund. One hundred percent of funds collected will be distributed through local non-profit organizations to Camp Fire survivors. So far business partners, companies, and credit unions have pledged $200,000 to the fund. But with nearly 14,000 homes destroyed, much more is needed.
