Erie, PA – April 19, 2022 – Erie Federal Credit Union (Erie FCU) conducted a branch-wide initiative to raise money for assistance to displaced Ukrainian families. Members and non-members were encouraged to visit any Erie FCU branch location from April 1, 2022 through April 15, 2022 to donate. With every donation, an Erie FCU staff member placed a Ukrainian flag/heart on the branch wall in honor of the donor’s support.
The funds collected, paired with a direct Erie FCU contribution, amounted to $16,500 and are set to transfer this week to the Polish Credit Union Association responsible for managing the disbursement of funds to Ukrainian refugees in need
“We should all feel very satisfied in knowing that we were part of something much larger than ourselves. The efforts of our members and the community will go a long way to help those in desperate need of basic care, medical equipment and ambulances to get wounded and sick refugees out of the war zone and to Polish hospitals”, said Brian Waugaman, CEO of Erie FCU.
