DEL MAR, Calif. – The National Council of Postal Credit Unions has decided to broaden its appeal on behalf of the Washington Postal Employees Credit Union, the $17 million institution evacuated from its postal facility in Washington D.C. after anthrax spores traced to letters there killed several postal employees and infected a United States Senate building. Even though the evacuation took place in the fall of 2001, the credit union has yet to re-enter its facilities since the entire Brentwood complex – over a 17-million square-foot complex of warehouse and processing space – remains shuttered. In the course of the evacuation, Washington Postal has incurred more than $100,000 in uncovered and uninsured expenses that the other postal credit unions, through the Council, have tried to meet. “We’ve decided to widen our appeal to all credit unions and credit union associations,” said NCPCU president Sidney Parfait. “The response to our initial fundraising letter was great, but we need to raise more.” One hundred percent of donations given to the Council on behalf of Washington Postal will go to the credit union, the Council said.
