WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -Truliant Federal Credit Union has donated a 1999 Ford Windstar company van to a single mother whose family relocated to Greensboro after Hurricane Katrina. The mother and new Truliant member, Roberta Brown, her two grown children, two young grandchildren, and 75-year old mother, all lifelong residents of New Orleans, were relocated to Greensboro by way of their sponsored “care team,” New Garden Friends Meeting. Brown and her mother’s home in the 9th Ward of New Orleans, an area further damaged by Hurricane Rita, were destroyed by the rising waters along with their car and most of their belongings. Truliant FCU staffer and New Garden Friends Meeting member Nancy Davis relayed Brown’s heartbreaking story to fellow employees and execs. “Truliant wanted to do something to help the people whose lives were devastated by Hurricane Katrina,” said Truliant EVP Thom Beck who organized the van donation. “Even a simple donation or act of kindness to one victim can go a long way in a tragedy like this.” Brown and her family have recently secured housing in Greensboro, and she is currently seeking work. “Truliant’s generosity has really touched my heart and the gift of the van is a big step in helping my family become self-sufficient again in a new city,” said Brown.
