Tornadoes Across South Wreak Havoc, Spur Credit Unions to Action
The misery index for credit union managers, employees and members who survived the April 27 sweep of killer tornadoes across seven states was no less than that shared by most residents.
But in a quirk of fate, the amount of property damage to credit unions proved less than expected. And initial reports showed no CU employee suffered personal injury, though that was not the case for members.
Pen Air said President/CEO Ron Fields personally drove the first round of supplies to Tuscaloosa and the CU set up collection drop-off points for additional supplies.
"Pen Air is just trying to help out those who need it during this terrible time," Fields said. "The spirit of Pen Air’s members and employees has always been one of community and this is no exception."
