The $160 million Members Choice of Central Texas Federal Credit Union in Waco, Texas, has created a fund to help West Volunteer Fire Department rebuild in the wake of the tragic fertilizer plant explosion on April 17.
The blast killed 14 people, including volunteer firefighters. Funds will be used to help the devastated department replace equipment and rebuild.
“No change is too small, no bill too large. The first responders in West are heroes, and their selfless service to the entire community is inspirational,” said Members Choice President/CEO Don Cox,
The credit union is encouraging its members to donate at any of its three branches in Waco. TDECU also has helped in the relief effort for the community of West, located a 20-minute drive north of Waco.
