EECU has a rich history of community support and when employees first heard about the Texas Wildfires they decided to lend help where they could to the wildfire relief efforts. EECU employees collected roughly $1,000 in individual donations. Employees of all 12 branches participated by donating money to help firefighters, the Red Cross and people that live in the communities devastated by the destruction of the fires.
EECU then matched the funds contributed by employees to bring the total donation to $2,000. The donations were presented to The American Red Cross – North Texas Chapter, $1,000 and the First National Bank of Santo Wildfire Relief Account $1,000. “EECU proudly serves Palo Pinto County and surrounding Counties, I am proud to see the commitment of our employees to our fellow neighbors in need. I hope these funds can help firefighters and families who lost everything with some basic needs,” says EECU President and CEO, Lonnie Nicholson.
