CUNA Hurricane Relief Work Acknowledged By President Bush
WASHINGTON-CUNA's efforts to help rebuild credit unions - and therefore their members' lives - have been noticed at the pinnacle of American Government. President George W. Bush wrote CUNA Oct. 6 to thank the organization for its efforts to aid the victims of Hurricane Katrina. "I learned about your extraordinary contributions to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina," the letter read. "I appreciate your efforts, and our whole nation is grateful for your kindness and generosity." President Bush added, "The scenes from Hurricane Katrina have touched our hearts, and our nation is again showing the world that the greatest challenges bring out the best in America. Together, we will continue to bring new hope to those affected by this tragedy, and the Gulf Coast will emerge better and stronger." He concluded, "The good works of the Credit Union National Association demonstrate the character and great strength of our Nation. May God bless all those affected by this storm, and may God continue to bless America."
