Virginia Beach, VA (October 19, 2017) — This week, 27 members of Chartway Federal Credit Union’s Board of Directors and Leadership team promoted the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” by volunteering in the Houston community impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

As part of their strategic planning session in Texas, Chartway dedicated a day to volunteering with the American Red Cross Greater Houston. The credit union’s volunteers helped clean hundreds of folding cots used during Hurricane Harvey to prepare them for the next disaster.

Chartway has over 18,000 members in Texas, along with 17 employees who work at six local branches. Several of the credit union’s employees were displaced by the storm, so Chartway’s employee-led CARE Team also held an internal fundraiser, raising over $6,000 for their fellow employees in Houston.

Immediately after the storm, Chartway donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross for their Disaster Relief efforts in the Houston community as part of their outreach program. Brian Schools, President & CEO of Chartway said, “We are dedicated to making a difference in our communities and are honored to support our members, employee, and neighbors during this time of need.”
