First Future Credit Union, San Diego, announced that credit union employees, volunteers and members raised nearly $220,000 to help credit union members that were affected by the wildfires in Southern California last fall. The first grants from CU Aid, the centralized disaster relief fundraising system activated during the fires by the NCUF and the California Credit Union League, were completed in the San Diego area. First Future Credit Union members Daniel and September Katje and Shirleen Miller both received grants ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 to help begin their rebuilding efforts. The checks were presented by NCUF Chairman Mary Cunningham.
