How Corning Credit Union Is Helping Its Communities

Sponsored Content provided by Robin Davis - Director of Operations and Member Experience, Corning Credit Union (CCU)

At Corning Credit Union, we exist to serve our members and local communities, especially during tough times. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many of us live, work, and serve others in a rapid amount of time. However, regardless of these operational changes, our commitment to our members and our communities continue to remain the same.

Staying Committed to Our Members and our Communities
 
Our Stronger Together relief efforts are designed to help alleviate stress our members may be facing due to the impact and financial hardships caused by this pandemic. As we continue to serve our members, we also remain committed to strengthening the communities we serve. This includes focusing on the biggest needs in each community, such as food scarcity, and working with area nonprofits and small businesses to determine and assist their needs. For example, Mother Hubbard's Cupboard, Nourish NC, Pender County Christian Services, and Feeding the Fearless - Cape Fear Area are just a few examples of organizations fighting food scarcity that we’ve supported with financial donations so far.
 
Encouraging Strength in Our Communities – How You Can Give and Get Help
 
We believe we are all in this together and can all do something to help both ourselves and others. To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of resources and actions you can take to keep yourself safe and help others.  

  • Follow Guidance from Local, State and Federal Authorities
    • For the latest information on COVID-19, visit the CDC or WHO websites
  • Support Local Businesses
    • Order takeout or delivery from a local restaurant, and purchase gift certificates from local businesses that can be used later
    • Purchase meals or gift certificates and donate them to essential staff to show your appreciation
    • Wilmington-area residents can visit Caring To Deliver
  • Donate to Your Local Food Bank
    • Food banks are in critical need of food and monetary donations – if you're able, please consider donating to a local food bank or pantry near you

    • If you need assistance finding food, paying housing bills, or other essential services, visit the 211 website to find your local 211 or dial 2-1-1 to speak to someone who can help
 
Stronger Together – Now and in the Future
 
We understand this is a tough time for many, and the best we can do for our members and community is be there for them. Because we know that together, we’re stronger – and we can get through anything. Learn more at corningcu.org/support.
