ACU Foundation’s response to COVID 19
DuPont, WA – America’s Credit Union (ACU) partners with Thurston TOGETHER! to help Yelm community members. Last year, ACU founded the ACU Foundation, a non-profit 501c3 organization chartered with the mission of enhancing the lives of military members, South Sound residents, and their families. Last week, the ACU foundation partnered with Thurston TOGETHER! to help support families in the Yelm community who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Foundation and TOGETHER! Have processed over 90 applications and have worked to help pay bills for four families who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
ACU is also reaching out to every member, helping those who are experiencing hardships because of the healthcare crisis. The most vulnerable, elderly, and veteran members are being helped first by the ACU Foundation, who is making grocery and essential need donations to those members, with contactless delivery.
