SAVANNAH (July 1, 2022) — Center Parc Credit Union (CPCU) and its parent organization, Atlanta Postal Credit Union (APCU), were among five credit unions that participated in “Credit Unions for Ukraine,” a campaign that raised a total of $30,000 for the Ukrainian Displacement Fund.
CPCU and APCU’s donation accounted for $5,103 of that total. The Ukrainian Displacement Fund was established by the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions and will use the donations to support credit union members and staffers in Ukraine who have been impacted by the Russian invasion. Associated Credit Union led the fundraising efforts among credit unions in Georgia.
“As soon as Associated Credit Union approached us about donating to the Ukrainian Displacement Fund, we knew we needed to participate,” said APCU/CPCU CEO Chuck Head. “We support the good work and ‘people-helping-people’ mission of credit unions around the world and we were pleased to be able to lend a hand to some truly deserving credit union members and staffers.”
The Worldwide Foundation of Credit Unions serves as the charitable and development arm of the World Council of Credit Unions. That group has members in 89 countries and works to improve lives and communities through credit unions.
APCU is Georgia’s first chartered credit union and is the largest postal credit union in the United States. APCU serves more than 100,000 members, including residents throughout Georgia, as well as postal workers and employees of dozens of local companies and governmental organizations. The Credit Union manages more than $2 billion in assets. Established by a post office employee to help improve the financial well-being of postal workers in Georgia, APCU was chartered in 1925 as a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative, built on the premise that working people need a safe and sound place to save and borrow money. Its community-minded brand, CPCU, launched in 2020. Click here for more information about APCU and click here for more information about CPCU.
