American Heritage Credit Union President and CEO Bruce K. Foulke and Chief Operating Officer Scott McCaw, at the behest of the World Council of Credit Unions, last week performed a humanitarian trip to credit unions in the Bahamas that were impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
Foulke and McCaw arrived in the Bahamian Islands and observed the severe damage to the islands’ infrastructure as a result of the hurricane. They met with employees and members of the Public Workers’ Co-operative Credit Union Ltd. Branch in Freeport and provided damage assessment to facilitate global support from the credit union movement. Additionally, they provided counsel and aid to their fellow credit union colleagues so that they can resume operations as soon as possible and offer much-needed economic assistance to their members.
The Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions has set up a donation page at www.doglobalgood.org/give to help provide relief for the immediate needs of Bahamian credit union members and staff as well as to address long-term building needs in the Bahamas.
