Christian Community Credit Union donated $5,000 to Samaritan’s Purse relief effort in response to the devastating tornadoes on December 10-11, 2021 that swept through six states—Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The unfathomable levels of destruction have left the loss of lives, homes, churches, and businesses.
The funds for the donation come from Christian Community Credit Union’s “Cards that Give to Missions” program, in which a portion of the Credit Union’s interchange income (fees merchants pay to card issuers) is donated when cardholders use their Christian Community Credit Union-issued credit cards for purchases.
“We are deeply saddened by the devastation we have seen from the tornadoes,” said Blair Korschun, Christian Community Credit Union President and CEO. “Our prayers go out to all those who have been affected and for those who have lost loved ones. A crisis of this magnitude, especially during this Christmas season, is never easy. We ask our fellow brothers and sisters to join us in supporting relief efforts by donating to Samaritan’s Purse or other organizations to help the victims.”
