The $1.2 billion Pen Air Federal Credit Union is taking donations for the Red Cross at its 19 locations for the next two weeks.
The money will go to the Red Cross for relief efforts following Hurricane Isaac.
“Our local area is lucky to be spared the devastation of a direct hit from this storm, but it is our duty to help those closely affected by Isaac,” said Stewart Ramsey, president/CEO of the 110,400-member credit union based in Pensacola on the Florida panhandle.
“Pen Air Federal Credit Union understands the mission of the Red Cross, and hopes our community will respond in helping support that mission,” Ramsey said.
Pen Air said the collection effort may extend beyond two weeks depending on donation trends and Red Cross needs.
The credit union has 19 branches in northwest Florida and southeast Alabama, including four student-run branches in high schools.
