UK Federal Credit Union and Members Donate $25,000 for Hurricane Relief

Lexington, Ky., - November 1, 2017 -  As recent hurricanes battered the US, the University of Kentucky Federal Credit Union (UKFCU)  and its members decided to take action and helped raise money for the American Red Cross to help hurricane relief efforts. UKFCU members raised over $10,000, which was matched dollar for dollar by the University of Kentucky Federal Credit Union. In addition to the donation match, the credit union donated additional funds, rounding the total donation to $25,000 to help those impacted by the storms. Even former UK Basketball Point Guard, Dominique Hawkins, got in on the action by tweeting to his followers to donate for hurricane relief with UKFCU.

“I believe providing assistance to others in times of need such as this is very much in alignment with ‘the credit union way’.  It’s at the heart of what we are supposed to do, as the original credit union philosophy intended.” said David Kennedy, President/CEO of the University of Kentucky Federal Credit Union.
