Tropical Financial Credit Union Collects Relief Supplies for Bahamian Hurricane Victims

Miramar, Fla.  – With Hurricane Dorian devastating parts of the Bahamas, Tropical Financial Credit Union helped collect much-needed relief supplies for the thousands of storm survivors. 

Within hours after the powerful hurricane hit, the credit union set up collection sites at its corporate office and nine branches throughout South Florida.  Tropical Financial members, employees and the general public were invited to stop by and drop off food, water and personal hygiene items.  The credit union worked with local media to publicize the drop-off locations and within two-and-half-days, collected thousands of pounds of supplies. 

“While the storm didn’t hit South Florida, it did hit home in the sense that several of our members have ties to the Bahamas and the Caribbean region,” said Rich Helber, president/CEO.  “We were honored to join the rest of the community to help the survivors who are facing a lot of pain and an uncertain future in the aftermath of Dorian.”

In addition to collecting items, the credit union is inviting members to donate to the American Red Cross and has promised to match each gift up to a total of $5,000.
