RBFCU Donates $100,000 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund
LIVE OAK, Texas (Aug. 30, 2017) — The recent devastation South Texas has endured in the midst of Hurricane Harvey has affected thousands of people and caused potentially billions of dollars in damage, and one Texas-based credit union is joining in the relief effort. Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union (RBFCU) announced today they are donating $100,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
“Like everyone, we are shocked and saddened by the catastrophic impact of Hurricane Harvey,” said RBFCU President and CEO, Christopher O’Connor. “Thousands of our members and employees have already been directly or indirectly affected by Harvey and the full extent of the damage is still unknown.” The RBFCU headquarters sits only 200 miles west of Houston and the coastal region.
With a credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” RBFCU is encouraging others to help in any way they can. “This could have been any of us,” O’Connor said. “We’re inspired by the efforts of so many communities banding together to help those in need.”
Established in 1952, Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union is a full-service financial cooperative whose mission is to improve member’s economic well-being and quality of life. With assets exceeding $8 billion, RBFCU serves nearly 700,000 members from 55 branch locations throughout Texas.
