California credit unions are fielding reports that some of their employees and members have lost everything in the wildfires, which continue to keep a few branches closed and threaten communities in Northern and Southern California.

“Members are asking for help at our branches — many have told us they have lost everything,” Erica Taylor said, vice president, communications and community relations for the $12.1 billion Golden 1 Credit Union. “Our human resources and branch teams are working to provide support for our employees and members.”
