ROANOKE, VA (March 10, 2022) — Member One Federal Credit Union donated $2,000 to the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions (WFCU), the charitable and engagement arm of World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), for The Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund.
WFCU launched this fundraising effort to show support to Ukraine’s credit unions, which have been effected by the current military conflict. The Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund will provide financial support to help ease both short-term impact and long-term challenges faced by Ukraine’s credit union system, as well as employees and members.
“We are deeply saddened by the events unfolding in Ukraine, and like many others, want to show our support,” said Frank Carter, President/CEO of Member One Federal Credit Union. “Credit unions across the globe have an incredible history of supporting one another in times of need, so we are honored to make this contribution to the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions to help stabilize the Ukrainian national credit union system. We believe safe access to affordable financial services is a right that all people should be guaranteed.”
